R.I.P: Adam Goldstein

I know this news might be a little bit late, but I will post it nevertheless.

Adam Goldstein, 36, or as known as DJ AM to the music industry, found dead in an apartment in New York City on August 28th, 2009.

Spinning for some bastards

DJ AM, as maybe some of you might know, was dating (or engaged, I'm not sure) The daughter of Lionel Ritchie, Nicole.

Yeah, the engagement ceremony


Why does this ceased-to-live guy deserve a mention in my blog?

For those who don't know, DJ AM has been one of the most prolific sneaker collectors in the sneaker collections scene. I think he has a collection of few thousand pairs of sneakers.

Cause of death? Overdose?

Anyway, a little bit of his background:

Adam Michael Goldstein (March 30, 1973 – August 28, 2009) was an American club disc jockey better known as DJ AM. Goldstein was a former member of the rock band Crazy Town, and scratched on albums for Papa Roach, Madonna, and Will Smith, among others. He collaborated with Travis Barker of Blink-182 at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, and appeared in several television series.

On September 19, 2008, Goldstein was seriously injured when a Learjet he was traveling in crashed on takeoff.

Singer Mandy Moore, with whom he was close, flew to be by his side at the Georgia hospital where he was staying. He had been battling post-traumatic stress after the crash, and suffering from 'survivor guilt'.

In Memory:

The music scene, sneakers scene and the gossip scene lost another cool dude.
