DJ AM’s Death Disturbing on Many Levels


UPDATE: Saw Blink perform in Hartford tonight. Amazing. So emotional. Raw, real. I’ve never felt closer to the band than I did tonight, and I’ve never had more respect for them.

What the f*ck?

NEW YORK (AP) — A law enforcement official says the celebrity disc jockey known as DJ AM has been found dead in his New York City apartment, which had drug paraphernalia in it.

The official tells The Associated Press that 36-year-old Adam Goldstein was found in his Manhattan apartment Friday evening. The official says there was no evidence of foul play.

The death comes a year after Goldstein survived a South Carolina plane crash that killed four other people.

This is upsetting to me on many levels. First, how awful that one would survive a plane crash only to die a year later. Second, how is Travis (Barker) handling the news? And while I know this is terrible, I can’t help but get an eerie “Final Destination” vibe from all of this. Third, and most concerning to me, is the fact that I’m going to see Blink 182 tomorrow in Hartford and if the show gets canceled so help me God don’t even come near me for a week because I will be breathing fire.
