Travis Barker Attends DJ AM's Funeral

DJ AM (real name Adam Goldstein) is laid to rest at a private funeral by friends and family — including Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and actor Scott Caan — at Hillside Memorial Park on Wednesday (September 2) in Culver City, Calif.

A memorial will also be held Thursday evening at L.A.’s Hollywood Palladium for AM, who died last week at the age of 36.

MTV released a statement, saying, “MTV was honored to support him as he helped young people battle their own addictions. Our heartfelt thoughts go out to his family.”

RIP AM.

@wildcats:
I hear they are leaning towards suicide.

I am surprised he was buried in LA, since I thought he was from out of state. The cemetery has a lot famous people there. The whole thing is very, very sad.

Totally insensitive, but Travis should have left his Pradas at home…..really tacky shades…

Anyway, RIP.

T pain: GEEZ! Heaven forbid Travis wears sunglasses. Sorry he just happens to make millions from his business ventures and buys higher end products.

@T pain:

Funny! I thought the exact same thing! Tacky glasses for a funeral.
Anyway, very sad story. He must have been so tortured to go back to drugs.
On a side note: Looks really funny to see all these guys in various stages of dress-up:-)

***************************************
You are soooooo ignorant. He wore the glasses he owns.
In your little ignorant pea brain, was he supposed to go out to the 99 Cent store to purchase some glasses, just for the funeral.

@a realist: Hello People, Try dealing with Post Traumatic Stress disorder then you tell me how you would lead to taking drugs to cope with the guilt, nightmares, visions of the situation that caused all the trauma. Try that and then you can say something about someone else s reason for using. First and Foremost he wasn’t buying the anti anxiety/ depression meds off the street. I know from experience that those meds or with drawling from abruptly stopping those meds can make you do things out of the normal or even commit suicide. And about the glasses, What does that even have to do with anything? really, seriously. It has absolutely nothing to do with anything. Fact is, Travis attended his very close friend whom he survived a plan crash with also..Funeral with respect.
Some people aren’t comfortable with crying or showing emotional personal feelings with other in which they do not know (People like you who are judging him). Think before you speak.

So sad that he survived that awful plane crash only to die due to drugs.
I think he never recovered fully from that crash. It’s amazing that both he and Travis Barker made it out alive. People need to take pause and reflect on this young mans life. He was spared once and then his life is over just like that.

what’s up with the pimp suit…
and both of their hair, looks a bit much for a funeral

@T pain:

He prolly has shades on b.c he’s been crying his eyes out all wk from sorry and guilt. THey def had a bond as plane crash survivors. Maybe Travis feels he could have done more for DJ AM. WHo knows what type of survivors guilt Travis has too. Only thing Travis has lil kids where DJ AM had no one to help pull him thru.

Personally, I don’t care what they wore, don’t care if they shaved, etc., etc. The only thing that is important is that they cared enough for their friend that they attended his funeral. My prayers are with DJ’s mom, family and friends at this very sad time. May he rest in the arms of angels.
