CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio – Talk about giving your fans the finger!
Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker did just that, but not exactly the way you might think.
Barker tweeted out after a show in Ohio that he left a chunk of his finger on stage.
Yeah, he even posted on Instagram a pic of the bloody finger for proof!
And another Instagram shot shows off his bloody snare drum that further reveals the aftermath of his finger-less frustration.
Calgary, for you I left my blood, sweat and tears on stage. Thank you for an amazing night 👊🏼#DrumsDrumsDrums

It was no small thing to lose that chunk of finger, but it’s easy to see how it happened when you watch Barker in action during his drum solo.
Now the gruesome, ghastly finger pic has gone viral, but it hasn’t slowed down the drumming madman.
The band’s tour doesn’t end until October 7, and they say 40-year-old Barker will rock on — with or without his finger through the rest of the tour.
But he might consider installing a first aid kit to go with that drum kit.
