    DJ AM was found dead at his New York City apartment at around 5:20 PM. Friday, August 28, 2009. He was 36 years old.[19]
    TMZ Reported that friends called the police, who broke down the door and then found DJ AM's body. Before the police broke down the door, they noticed an odd odor coming from his apartment. Sources say this may have been caused by the drug use. [20] Sources said drug paraphernalia was found in the apartment. [21]

    Yeah, I was watching E! and checking the blog sites, and BAM, it was announced. Sad. :frown1:

    I've met him too, he's really nice.

    He did a corporate party, and as it wore I got to check out his rig and bug the shit out of him with a zillion technical questions, and then I met him at a club in SF, hours before he went on. Yes, nice guy. The AC/DC logo-thing was un-original, but cool.

    It's kinda sad, but I thought the same thing.
    Too many young DJs taken before their time due to drugs. Sad day for the club community.

    Don't be silly. You're a dime a dozen. Sorry, eight cents, no tax.

    We live in New York. We learn pretty quickly how to bargain.

    Never heard of him before. :no: Not sure I would put him in the same category with Teddy Kennedy and Dominick Dunne. I think you have to start a whole new list of 3 for Goldstein.

    Yes. In addition to chronic pain from his injuries, he was reportedly dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder and survivor's guilt.
