Travis Barker can’t seem to catch a break. 

Taking to Instagram Thursday, August 18, the drummer revealed that he’s tested positive for COVID-19. 

“Covid sucks I’d rather be playing drums,” he wrote next to a photo of him playing with drumsticks. 

The news comes just two months after Barker, 46, suffered from a “severe life-threatening” case of pancreatitis. Days after the musician was spotted in a stretcher with wife, Kourtney Kardashian, by his side, he took to Twitter then to explain what happened. 

“I went in for an endoscopy Monday feeling great. But After dinner, I developed excruciating pain and have been hospitalized ever since,” Barker said in a July 2 tweet.

“During the endoscopy, I had a very small polyp removed right in a very sensitive area, usually handled by specialists, which unfortunately damaged a critical pancreatic drainage tube,” he continued. “This resulted in severe life-threatening pancreatitis.”

“I am so very very grateful that with intensive treatment I am currently much better,” Barker wrote.
