Article from: The Daily Telegraph

DJ AM – the celebrity disc jockey known for dating starlets and surviving a horrific plane crash – has been found dead in an apparent drugs overdose in New York.

Cops found prescription drug bottles inside DJ AM’s residence at 210 Lafayette Street after the 36-year-old’s lifeless body spotted face-down in his bed at around 5:23 pm by a friend, who was concerned he hadn’t heard from the performer in several days, sources said.

Emergency medical workers responding to a 911 call from the friend declared DJ AM dead at the scene, the Daily Telegraph reports. No foul play is suspected.

DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, had twittered recently that he had finished wrapping up an MTV reality show about drug addiction.

Prescription drugs and a crack pipe were found at the scene. Bottles of pills were found in both the bedroom and the kitchen. He was wearing sweatpants and no shirt.

Friends of the disc jockey gathered outside his apartment tonight, hugging each other. They declined to speak with reporters.

The Philadelphia native, whose real name was Adam Michael Goldstein, was a former member of the band Crazy Town, which scored the smash rap-rock hit “Butterfly” in 2001.

His work behind turntables in hotspots around the world paid him up to $25,000 or more per night – helping fund what became a collection of more than 1000 sneakers.

DJ AM had high-profile romances with Nicole Richie, to whom he was once engaged, as well as with actress Mandy Moore.

Last September 19, DJ AM and former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker were badly burned in the crash of a private plane in South Carolina that killed four other people on-board.

The plane crashed as it headed down the runway during takeoff.

Barker’s ex-wife, Playmate Shanna Moakler, responded to news of DJ AM’s death on Twitter, writing, “My deepest condolences for DJ AM, you were a great artist and will be severely missed. My thoughts and Prayers to his family and friends.”

“We all love him and miss him,” said DJ AM’s close friend, new York nightclub entrepreneur Mike Satsky.

Samathan Ronson, another celebrity DJ, tweeted to a friend, “Waiting for someone to say this isn’t true.”

Guitar virtuoso John Mayer tweeted, “We’re supposed to lose our friends to time, at an age when we’re ready to agree to the terms of having lived a long life. Not now.”

Lindsay Lohan wrote, “i can’t believe this … I’m in shock. why? why? r.i.p. adam.”

In his own last post on Twitter, dated Tuesday, DJ AM quoted a Grandmaster Flash song: “New York, New York. Big city of dreams, but everything in New York ain’t always what it seems.”

He was scheduled to have deejayed at Dusk in Atlantic City on Tuesday and then tonight at Rain in Las Vegas.

In a 2007 interview with the New York Times, DJ AM admitted to having begun seriously abusing crack cocaine in his early 20s. But he said he had been sober for the past nine years and had even recently given up smoking.

“All that’s left is caffeine,” he told the paper.

Fun Things to do in LA for Free pt1 The Tonight Show

1tonightshow

Today we went to the Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien! It was really fun. Just a bit of a wait to get in about an hour which is not actually so bad. Then they run that place like clockwork once you are inside and seated filming begins exactly as you see it on TV. I doubt they do much editing everything is done in one take. And in case you ever wondered what was in Conan’s coffee mug well its Diet Coke :).

If you are planning to come to LA or even just live here and have never gone go to the tonight show its a good time and tickets are free.

The new set is much nicer than the last one in person (sorry Jay my friend played your show and back stage was jenky and the set was dated)..

Anyway go here to sign up for tickets.
