Travis Barker has been released from a Los Angeles-area burn center, a rep for the former Blink-182 drummer confirmed to Access Hollywood.

Almost one month after he was first hospitalized with severe burns following his escape from a Lear jet crash, which killed four in Columbia, S.C., Barker has finally been released to go home.

On Thursday, the drummer and sometime DJ hit his MySpace Celebrity blog to update fans on his condition, and predicted his discharge.

“Just another quick one to let everyone know that I think I’m getting out of the hospital soon,” he wrote. “I can’t wait to get out of here and be home with the babes. The doctors say I’m healing up quickly and I’m gonna be out of here b4 you know it.”

Barker wrote that a host of friends stopped by the hospital to visit, including Yoko from Matsuhisa, who “brought some food in for us.”

“She’s such a sweetheart and so nice to take the time to bring me some rad food,” Barker blogged.

On Wednesday night, DJ AM, who also survived the crash, made his first official appearance since the incident, opening for Jay-Z at the Hollywood Palladium.
