Barker Forced To Delay +44 Return

LATEST: Former BLINK-182 drummer TRAVIS BARKER has been forced to delay his return to rock music after doctors expressed fears for his brittle bones. The star fractured his arm on the set of a music video with band +44 in September last year (06), but his recovery has been impeded after doctors diagnosed the bone weakness. According to bandmate MARK HOPPUS' MySpace page, Barker must wear a bone simulator on his forearm to encourage the limb to heal, but has been given the go-ahead from medical experts to undertake some light drumming. Drummer GIL SHARONE was drafted in by the band to replace Barker on +44's European tour, which began in Zurich, Switzerland last month (JAN07).
