Adam Goldstein, better known as DJ AM, has been found dead in his apartment. He was 36.
Goldstein hit headlines in September of last year when he and blink-182 drummer Travis Barker were the only two survivors of a plane crash that killed four in South Carolina. The cause of his death is unknown, however his past struggles with substance abuse point to a drug overdose is a possibility.
wow that's little eerie. bummer though RIP.
damn, dude survives a plan crash but goes out on a pussy overdose.

If it indeed was an overdose, that's really disappointing. You always hope that surviving a near-death experience would make someone value their life a little more and make some adjustments.

He nearly died, and threw his life away. You would think a plane crash could change a person. I guess not.

After surviving a near death experience, most people turn their life around. Making major improvments but somewhere along the line the experience fades away and they begin to fall back into old habits.
If anything, an overdose also makes as much sense because a near death experience could go either way, for better or worse.
^^^^^ internet psychologists
never listened to his stuff but RIP nonetheless
Now can be called DJ AM Dead
its amost like Final Destination....he evaded death in the plane crash....but it got him in the end.
Travis Barker Next? knock on wood.
joking aside, R.I.P Adam, you'll be missed
I saw him and Travis live at the Roxy last year. Best show i have ever seen. they had talent

this has been posted A LOT already. this is just the one that showed up.
Rest in Peace
Damn, this sucks. RIP
Now can be called DJ AM Dead
DJ AM Dead.
Ahhhh, hardly know anything about him.
I think we should wait until they confirm it was an overdose before we start getting all psychological on his ass.
no offence but who cares. There are bigger problems in life than to cry n whine over someone famous (thanks to E! channel) killing himself/herself due to prescription pills n drugs.
shit, if I was all burnt up, I'd do major drugs too...wait, I do major drugs anyway...
Jesus some of the people on here are assholes. Archer if you don't care then just don't post, don't take your time posting just to get a reaction out of people. Death is always a sad thing especially for a musician who had a career ahead of him and ideas, just because he's a musician you haven't heard of doesn't mean you can just piss on his memory over the internet. Anyway, I only listened to his latest release but he definitely had talent, RIP.
holy shit. rip.
Death is always a sad thing
That is a pretty sad life perspective you have there.
@commando i have heard of DJ AM and if he had a career in front of him he wouldve given a thought or 2 bout going through it sad/happy but without drugs.
Death is a sad thing yes, but will you mown n whine bout his death like his close ones will? NO. so why stick up for someone who made bad choices in life. I commented on that. Not his music.
TMZ says police found crack on his body and a pipe in his room.
Last year we were commenting on how glad we were that he survived the plane crash, and now this happens
dude that article makes it sound like some shi like final destination, hahaha
and for the ppl saying overdoses are usu life changing experiences need to shut up. a lot of times it is, but its usu just shrugged off.
