DJ AM: Gone Too Soon

  • SumoMe

Adam Goldstein, better known as DJ AM, was an American club disc jockey. Goldstein was a former member of the rock band Crazy Town. He was a frequent collaborator with Travis Barker of Blink-182 and appeared on several television series.

He cheated death once in September 2008 when he was seriously injured in a Learjet crash that killed four others.

On August 28 2009, Friday, he was found dead in his New York City apartment. We remember the man behind the console in pictures.


  1. His last Tweet.

    “New york, New york. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york aint always what it seems.”

    • What a poignant last Tweet.

      On another note, you know technology is taking over when people leave death Tweets.

      Just curious: how did you come across Penny?
