DJ AM Dies at Age 36

DJ AM, also known as Adam Goldstein, was found dead in his apartment in New York City at 5:20PM on Friday (August 28).

According to TMZ, DJ AM hadn’t been seen for a number of days and was only found when a friend went to go check on him.

DJ AM and Travis Barker both survived a plane crash last September 2008 in South Carolina where four other people in the plane died.

    apparently this poor guy used up his 9 lives on that plane crash, a friend used to hang with him, I can assure you it was an OD. Hey who gets his LAMBO from that entourage episode!! HOLLLLLLAAAAAAAAAA

    Maybe he was supposed to pass away at such a young age? He cheated death once and maybe that was his time to go then.
    The whole Final Destination thing.

    May he rest in peace.
