Former blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and DJ AM, a.k.a. Adam Goldstein, are expected to fully recover from the Friday night plane crash in Columbia, S.C., that killed four others, according to the executive director of the hospital where they are being treated, CNN reports.

Dr. Fred Mullins, executive director of the Joseph Still Burn Center in Augusta, Ga., said in a news conference on Sunday that the two musicians suffered second- and third-degree burns in the accident, which took the lives of pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31, of Anaheim Hills, Calif.; copilot James Bland, 52, of Carlsbad, Calif.; Barker assistant Chris Baker, 29, of Studio City, Calif.; and Barker security guard Charles Still, 25, of Los Angeles. Baker had appeared on the MTV reality show Meet the Barkers.

Dr. Mullins told reporters that Barker and Goldstein are facing weeks of hospitalization to treat their injuries. A National Transportation Safety Board spokeswoman said the cockpit voice recorder from the private jet has been found and that investigators will receive recordings of conversations between controllers and the crew.

Barker and Goldstein played a free concert together as TRVSDJ-AM in Columbia on Friday night.
