Upon being away, I heard the devastating news of one of my all time favorite DJ's DJ AM passing away in his NYC apartment on Friday.

AM, 36 who's real name is Adam Goldstein narrowly escaped a fatal plane crash with drummer Travis Barker last year but suffered severe 2nd degrees burns & was taking prescriptions medicines for it up until the day he died.

According to reports, DJ AM on the day he passed away, sent a text message to two friends about a Las Vegas gig he had that day at Rain Nightclub at the Palms.

Sixteen hours later, his friends called 911 because the deejay could not be reached before his scheduled flight since he was he was not answering his cell phone. Then according to a police source, the NYPD broke down the door to his SoHo apartment to find him dead, laying flat on his bed with a pair of sweatpants on and no shirt. 7 bottles of prescription pills including Xanax were found on his counter alongside a crack pipe!

Police are waiting on the toxicology reports, which can take weeks to know once and for all how he died.

Reports are also saying that AM had been battling depression lately and thought his depression was a result of trying to stop taking pain medication since his tragic plane accident.

However friends & family are all saying the drug stories are untrue & how DJ AM had been sober for 8-9 years since his crack addiction and had been shooting a show for MTV called Gone Too Far about young teenagers battling drug addictions and trying to get help!

But the eeriest part of this whole tragedy was the foreshadowing of his own death. AM had written a line from a Grandmaster Flash song on his Twitter before coming to NY, "
New york, new york. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york aint always what it seems."

So so so sad. . . .

Go YouTube his other magical mashups and incredible cuts and blends. You better. It's worth it!!!



Law enforcement sources directly connected with the death of DJ AM tell us that his death was the result of…… an accidental overdose and not a suicide — and there is a tragic, ironic twist of fate:

Our sources say DJ AM, a recovering addict, developed a dependency to Xanax and other benzodiazepines (a group of drugs used to treat anxiety) as a direct result of the plane crash he was in almost a year ago. We’re told AM (aka Adam Goldstein) developed a tremendous anxiety over flying — something he had to do frequently for his job. We’re told doctors began prescribing Xanax and other anti-anxiety medications to relieve his fear, but the benzos triggered a relapse into addiction. We’re told benzos are particularly dicey for recovering addicts.

Our sources say DJ AM’s relapse was “recent” — he was not abusing for a prolonged period of time before his death. We’re also told the OD had “absolutely nothing to do with his recent breakup.” Our sources say the evidence strongly indicates cause of death will be a o combination of crack cocaine and benzos.
