It was only a year ago that DJ AM alongside Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker survived a horrific plane crash and managed to cheat death. They were the only two passengers who survived although all four other passengers perished. You'd think that would be enough of a wake up call to help an individual walk a straight line. But as of today, reports out of New York are saying DJ AM was found dead in his apartment and it looks drug related. The New York Post reports drug paraphernalia was found inside of his apartment and police are investigating to see if DJ AM (born Adam Goldstein) died of an overdose. But there's no way to say if that's the case until the toxicology reports come back.
His last tweet was incredibly cryptic. On August 25, he tweeted, "New York New York big city of dreams, but everything in New York ain't always what it seems." While the circumstances around his death are mysterious, what is known is that while he was alive, he could rock a party like nobody else. The last time I saw DJ AM spinning, he was backing up Jay-Z last year and everyone was celebrating his recovery. So his death today is incredibly sad news.
