DJ AM (real name Adam Goldstein) was found dead in his New York city apartment on Friday, August 28, 2009. This came nearly a year after AM and friend Travis Barker survived a fatal plane crash that claimed the lives of 4 others. According to the New York Times, police found the 36-year old DJ laying face down with a crack pipe and some drugs in his bedroom. They also found bottles of prescription drugs, including Xanax in his kitchen.
Friends had been trying to reach Goldstein for several days, and one of theme eventually called 911. AM's last message on Twitter read: "New york, new york. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york aint always what it seems," a quote from the Grand Master Flash classic, "New York, New York."
Our thoughts and prayers are with the Goldstein family.
