Travis Barker, drummer for the popular pop-punk group Blink-182 recently paid tribute to his late mother on what would have been her birthday just yesterday (Sept. 10) via the social media platform Instagram.
Barker reportedly lost his mother back when he was only 11 years old. In part of his caption, the musician admits "not a day goes by" that he doesn't miss her.
Now 38, Barker expressed his love for his late mother, captioning the below with a photograph of both her and his father:
"This is the only pic I have of my Mom & Dad being goofy. Today's my Mom's Birthday. Lost her when I was 11. 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."

Barker is currently gearing up to record with the group that made him a household name, Blink-182, along with bassist Mark Hoppus and guitarist Tom Delonge. The group is putting together tracks for their upcoming seventh studio album, which they've been discussing for the last couple of months. It'll be their first record since 2011's Neighborhoods.
The group just finished playing at England's Reading and Leeds Festivals, where they shelled out some fan favorites and even a few rarities. A video of the set was released via the BBC, which the band happily tweeted about:
