Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein

djamMarch 30, 1973 – August 28, 2009

Known to the music world as “DJ AM,” Adam Goldstein was a DJ, musician and producer who was known for his work in the band Crazy Town and for his collaborations with artists like Will Smith and Blink-182’s drummer, Travis Barker. While touring with Barker in 2008, the small jet they were travelling in crashed, killing everyone else on board. Goldstein and Barker both survived with significant injuries. He recovered, but just under one year later, Goldstein died of an acute overdose of a pretty substantial drug cocktail. He was in the process of filming an intervention show called Gone Too Far for MTV when he died. The show aired months later despite his death as both a tribute and as a cautionary tale. He was 36.
