Culture: Sad: DJ AM’s plane crash suit turns into a wrongful death lawsuit

  • Before, it was just a sad story. Now, it’s much worse. The family of DJ AM amended the lawsuit against Clay Lacy Aviation, Goodyear Tire, Learjet and the estates of the two pilots killed in the crash. The suit states that although indirectly, the 2008 plane crash that Adam Goldstein miraculously survived (along with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker) led him to the drug relapse, which eventually killed him. Who knows if the suit will be successful? Ultimately, he’s gone. source

Music: Blink-182: A freaking mess onstage after DJ AM’s death

  • We are doing our very best to get through this show, but right now it’s very hard.
  • Blink-182 bassist/singer Mark Hoppus • On playing a show in Hartford, Conn. last night, almost immediately after DJ AM’s death. The band sang a song in honor of their fallen comrade, who was especially close with drummer Travis Barker, with tears rolling down their eyes. This sounds like one of the saddest sights ever. Both Barker and Goldstein shared in the plane crash tragedy last year, which killed many of their friends even though they survived. • source

Music: DJ AM’s autopsy: Thus far, the results are inconclusive

  • He had reportedly been drug-free for 11 years. The NYC Medical Examiner’s office is reporting that the cause of Adam Goldstein’s death is currently unclear. Bottles of prescription medications and drug-smoking paraphernalia were found near the DJ’s body. A painful, tough sort of irony: Goldstein was to be one of the stars of “Gone Too Far,” a drug-abuse intervention show on MTV. No word on whether the show will still air. source

Music: RIP DJ AM, a.k.a. Adam Goldstein, dead at 36 of a drug overdose

  • Dead too soon. Fought off death already. 11 months ago, DJ AM would have been one of the luckiest men alive. Today, he’s a man who couldn’t cheat death twice. Adam Goldstein, initially a member of Crazy Town and later a disc jockey to the stars who played numerous private events, was found dead in his New York apartment of a drug overdose today. It wasn’t supposed to happen this way. Goldstein (and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker) miraculously survived a plane crash in September in which everyone else died. A shocking and sad story for sure. source
