One of America's most famous disc jockey, Adam Goldstein commonly known as DJ AM, was found dead at his New York City apartment at around 5:20 p.m. on Friday, August 28, 2009.
Goldstein was a member of the rock band Crazy Town, known for their hit "Butterfly". He has also scratched on albums for Papa Roach, Madonna, Will Smith, and Shifty and played concerts with Jay-Z. He was dating singer-actress Mandy Moore. They broke off the relationship in March 2007.
Sources say the cause of death may have been accidental drug overdose. Statements by a New York law enforcement official to the Associated Press indicate that drug paraphernalia was found in the apartment, but no signs of foul play.
Check out one of his most recent videos entitled (I'm Blessed, I'm Alive - awww... How ironic!) inwhich he confessed that he was a recovering drug addict. He also discussed how he survived the September 19, 2008 plane crash. My condolences to his family.
May his life story would serve as a lesson to all of us. "Drug addicts don't grow old. They die young."
