DJ AM -- Spared From Second Plane Crash

3/11/2009 8:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

DJ AMUPDATE -- DJ AM's publicist flatly denies that he was ever booked on the Continental flight that crashed in Buffalo. His rep tells us, "DJ AM was never booked on the Continental flight that crashed last month, in fact he was performing that evening in NYC. That crash nor the one he was involved in, has prevented him from flying -- although he has tremendously scaled back his east coast residencies to focus on his recovery."

DJ AM, in an incredible sequence of events, was scheduled to fly on the doomed Continental flight that crashed in Buffalo and killed 49 people -- it would have been his second plane crash in six months.

According to a rep for a club in Chicago, AM backed out of a gig in Chicago because he doesn't want to fly anymore. The club rep says AM was booked on the Continental flight, but had a bad feeling about it and canceled and drove instead.

DJ AM now says his flying days are over. He will only book gigs if he can drive to them.

Good grief, that is just too close for comfort. Odds are, nothing else bad could possibly happen to him regarding a plane, but I don't think I would want to depend on flying if I were him, either.

That's crazy! I don't blame him. Maybe he can take Amtrak to the gigs far away?

You can't cheat death DJ AM! PEOPLE were not made to fly....none of us were born with wings! I believe they were metaphorically speaking when they say "I can fly" or "I believe I can fly" and so on.

Unless the airline steps forward to validate his claim, please excuse me for doubting this. What reason would he have to travel from NY to Buffalo that fateful night? I also had the winning $260 million MegaMillions Lottery ticket but I accidentally threw it away. Sounds too much like a cry for attention and some more time in the media spotlight.
