For the first time since DJ AM's death, Travis Barker, who survived a tragic plane crash with the celebrity DJ nearly a year ago, opens up about the loss of his friend.

"Don't know how I am gonna play 2night but I am for AM," the blink-182 drummer, 33, posted on Twitter Saturday night. "My brother is gone. i love u and miss u, I'll never forget all the good times we had."

He continued: "I'll never forget everything we've been thru and every time I play the drums i'll think of you. U were an amazing friend/DJ/human being."

Both Barker -- who suffered second- and third-degree burns after a Learjet caught fire during an aborted takeoff in South Carolina, leaving four others dead, on Sept. 19 -- and DJ AM (whose real name is Adam Goldstein) had said they were just thankful to be alive after the crash.

"Rest In Peace my brother," he Tweeted. "This really f***s me up."

On Friday, Barker's estranged wife, Shanna Moakler, told Us exclusively that she couldn't imagine how Barker was handling the news.

"My deepest condolences are to DJ AM. He was a great artist and will be severely missed," she said. "My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends. My support and love goes out to Travis, as I know how hard this is for him and how close they were."
