, a world-famous club disc jockey, was found dead in his NYC apartment on Friday evening. The cause is said to be an accidental drug overdose - though this is yet to be confirmed.
Some may have never experienced his mixing skills. Some may have known him best for his romances with Nicole Richie
and Mandy Moore
. Some may remember DJ AM
(also known as Adam Goldstein
) and Travis Barker
, (drummer of Blink-182), as the only survivors of a plane crash last September. Some may even think of the late Heath Ledger
who passed away due to a similar cause in his NYC apartment.
The Palms Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada lit up only the letters ‘A’ & ‘M’ in a silent tribute to the disc jockey who had Friday residency at Rain Nightclub, located inside the hotel.
DJ AM’s last update on Twitter was: “New York, New York. Big city of dreams; but, everything in New York ain’t always what it seems.”
There are speculations that a recent break-up with his longtime girlfriend Hayley Wood combined with the pain and stress of last year’s plane crash may have led to the horrific situation.
