[Howard] likes this one Blink 182 song ''Stay Together For the Kids'' that upsets him every time he plays it. It's about divorce and it hits a nerve with him.Travis Barker And DJ AM Plane Crash Discussions. 09/22/08. 6:10am
Howard said that Travis Barker, the drummer for Blink 182, was in a plane crash. He said that they have been on the show. He didn't remember what song it was but Artie told him that one of their songs reminded Howard of his daughter. The song was ''Stay Together For The Kids'' so Fred found that one and played it for Howard.
I wonder which daughter?
It's nice to see a modicum of self-awareness and regret over what he's done.
It's funny, because I always remembered this conversation, but I was under the impression that this song came out while he was in the midst of going through the divorce. I didn't realize that it came out in 2002, and he was still feeling this way.
I've mentioned here before that several years into his relationship with Beth, Howard mentioned waking up, and missing his ex-wife so badly. Robin annoyingly responded by saying "that's weird, when you've been with someone else for such a long while now." It's true, but I didn't want her to say anything, because I wanted him to keep talking about it. He backtracked due to that, and was like "well, I miss my family. My kids and everything..."
