Well, it's been a whirlwind year for Travis Barker. After a car accident in July led to some nasty medical complications -- not least of which were blood clots in his arms -- for the "famous" Blink-182 drummer, Barker had to stop performing until his doctors cleared him.

Unfortunately, of course, that meant Blink-182 had to cancel a number of their shows, including their Kings of the Weekend Las Vegas residency. 

Now, according to some brief Instagram posts from both Blink-182's profile and also Barker's own profile, the influential pop-punk drummer and Famous Stars and Straps founder is all good to get back behind the kit.

While the one-time San Diegans don't have any hometown shows scheduled at the moment, you can always take a quick Vegas road trip to see them at the Palms. 

Blink fans are just glad to have you back, Trav.
