Barker remembers mother

Travis Barker paid tribute to his late mother on Instagram with a touching post.

Travis Barker has paid tribute to his late mother.

The Blink-182 drummer lost his his mum, Gloria, at the age of 11 and admits “not a day goes by” he doesn’t miss her.

The 38-year-old rocker took a moment to remember her with a post on Instagram Wednesday – on what would have been her birthday.

“This is the only pic I have of my Mom & Dad being goofy,” he captioned the image.

“…Not a day goes by I don’t miss her, she was the best Mom I could ask for. I know she’s wit me everywhere I go and I hope she’s proud. Lucky to still have my Pops. #RestInPeace #ImJustGettinStarted #MissYou #Cookie,” he added.

The message came just a few days after Travis and his Blink-182 bandmates surprised fans with a meet and greet at England’s Reading Festival shortly before their headlining gig.

The pop punk trio – formed by Travis, Tom DeLonge and Mark Hoppus – went their separate ways in 2005 after months of disagreements, but found themselves reuniting after a series of distressing events.

Mark recently opened up about the reunion, revealing it was only after a lengthy hiatus that they were able to put the past behind them.

“We broke up for five years and there was all this animosity and bad stuff said about each other in the press,” he recalled to British newspaper Metro last month. “There was a period when all these horrible things were happening – friends of ours were dying, Travis was in a plane crash. I think after that everybody was just emotionally drained from the entire experience and we were ready to reconnect.”
