DJ AM, legally called Adam Goldstein, gained celebrity as being a part of the group known as Crazy Town. He proceeded to obtain the name DJ AM from his gift of performance Deejaying at celebrations for the famous and rich. In September 2008, DJ AM survived a one engine aircraft crash which took the existence of four of the six people, in South Carolina. Though he was in critical condition and a coma he began to recover and carry on his career in tv and Deejaying .
As irony would have it, about one year down the road from his near miss with destiny, DJ AM was discovered lifeless in his New York City home from an obvious drug overdose. Early signs were said to be decided by the first responders, authorities and ambulance, that drugs were still left on the table next to his bed and that one of several medications was not ingested. The final judgment would come a day in the future proclaiming that DJ AM passed away of an accidental overdose of medication including a mix of medications and cocaine.
