RIP DJ AM
Celebrity disk-jockey DJ AM was found dead in SoHo Friday afternoon. He was 36 years old.
The body of DJ AM, born Adam Goldstein, was found on the seventh floor of an apartment building at 210 Lafayette Street, law-enforcement sources said.
Goldstein, along with former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, barely escaped death in a small plane crash in South Carolina on Sept. 19, 2008. That incident left him badly burned, but four others died in the accident.
The details of his demise are still unclear, but police sources said investigators are looking into the possibility of a drug overdose, as drug paraphernalia was found near his body. Goldstein was found wearing sweatpants and no shirt, and a crack pipe was found in his apartment, law-enforcement sources said.
DJ AM had not been heard from for a few days, and one of his friends went to check on him, but got no response after knocking on his apartment door, law-enforcement sources said. The friend then called the police, who broke into the apartment at about 5:30 p.m. Friday and found the DJ's body.
DJ AM was very out of this world Dj. With respect to him here is a set that was very popular. For those are not aware of it download and listen to his gold. Made with Scratch Live, I have a tracklist in the comments, I did my best, but if you see anything you know please comment. The guys on the Scratch Live forum reckon the tracklist has never been cracked.
