DJ AM, R.I.P. :sad:

DJ AM Dies | TMZ.com

Law enforcement sources tell us DJ AM -- also known as Adam Goldstein -- was found dead this afternoon in New York City.



Sources tell us he was found in his apartment at around 5:20 PM. We're told drug paraphernalia was found at the scene.

Our sources say DJ AM had not been seen or heard from for a few days -- one of his friends went to check on him, but got no response after knocking on his apartment door.

We're told the friend called the police, who broke down the door and then found DJ AM's body.

Back in September of 2008, DJ AM and Travis Barker survived a plane crash in South Carolina. Four people died in the crash -- which was caused when the airplane aborted takeoff and then ran off the runway. DJ AM and Barker were the only survivors.

Story developing...

Yeah, I don't know if "poor guy" is the right reaction here. Dude had a near-death experience, and instead of turning that into something positive, he ODs in a hotel room? It may be harsh, but the first thing that comes to my mind is "idiot".

Travis Barker is probably going to be living a pretty cautious existence from here on out...

My thoughts exactly.



I was on the list to see this dude (and Matt & Kim) at a bar a few weeks ago but wound up going out of town. A friend of mine who went said it was awesome, so apparently he was quite a talent. All I know is the plane story.

I'm sorry, but I agree with Laz. I feel bad for his family and loved ones, but, sorry kids, you reap what you sow.

Drugs.
Are.
Bad.

Perhaps the post-traumatic stress due to the accident and survivor's guilt were too overwhelming
