DJ AM, Adam Goldstein, is a story of a DJ that went from rags to riches. Grew up in a working class family, but became one of world’s premiere DJs, charged 5 figures for an event.

He has scratched on albums for Papa Roach, Madonna, Will Smith, and Shifty and played concerts with Jay-Z.

DJ AM worked hard. DJ AM is known for excavating obscure songs as well as seamlessly blending tracks with unlikely partners. Not just repeating the same old same old as many faux DJs often do.

Music editor Nick Barat of Fader, a magazine that covers emerging music and fashion, describes Goldstein in 2007: “There is a lot of questionable talent in the world of celebrity D.J.s … AM is not the product of nepotism. He’s someone who has grinded all the way to the top, and he deserves all the attention and money he is getting right now.”

DJ AM partied hard too. Dated / engaged with Nicole Richie, dated Mandy Moore, and other stars.

He had his share of extra lives, not to mention his colorful life.
1997, gun jammed when he was down on his luck.
2008, survived a plane crash.

But unfortunately,
2009, August 28, DJ AM passed away at age 36.

Rest in peace.
