Tragic.......AGAIN and AGAIN! I ponder though, WHO WILL BE NEXT? The"CELEBRITY" lifestyle is literally SMOKE and MIRRORS, all PUNS intendend. SMOKE(CRACK,METH,HEROINE,OXY,ETC.)and MIRRORS(COCAINE,METH,HEROINE,OXY,ETC.)JUST SAY NO TO DRUGS and smoke WEED instead. RIP TO DJ AM and condolances to his family.

If you are so worried about the fires in California or fighting illegal immigrants then you are on the WRONG site. Let me point you in the right direction.............http://news.yahoo.com/world

Why is it that myspace is ONLY posting good/positive comments about DJ AM...They certainly did'nt do that for Michael Jackson, and DJ AM's apparent drug use/abuse was immediately known.

You all suck    

Its so funny to me how many people post on here "Who is he? I don't care" ...you obviously care enough to write a comment, submit the comment, check your email and click the link, so your comment can be posted.

Someone posted that they would feel sorry for him if he had died of cancer or in an accident. A lot of cancer is caused by additcions such as smoking, drinking, and junk food. So it would be okay if he were addictied to smoking? Just because you can't OD on smoking doens't mean its not going to kill you. A ton of people can't stop smoking...what makes this addiction okay? Because its legal?

He tried to stay clean, he had a good run at it. He relapsed...maybe that was the first time, no one knows for sure. He had a TV show coming out helping youth to get clean. Maybe that pushed him over the edge? Maybe like the doctors say that being on pain meds triggers an addicts mind and they often relapse. Having second and third degree burns all over your body must cause someone to be in a lot of pain. Maybe the memories of watching his firends burn to death also was a factor. He had a BAD BAD year. It hasn't even been a year since the plane crash.

How can people be so harsh as to laugh and point fingers at someone who really tired to stay off of drugs. I hope someone does the same to you, or someone that you love some day.

Reading all these comments is disheartening... despite all the positive in his life, he's being glorified by the negative. What he's endured, we can't possibly understand and to take judgment upon him is ignorance at it's greatest. Don't misunderstand, I'm not condoning drug use by any means however, as the old saying goes: "don't judge a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes". I can only hope he's found the peace in death that he wasn't able to find in life. May his family and love ones find strength during this hard time.

RE: amber s nemesis

86. I'm reading an MTV article about an interview Adam Goldstein gave in July 2009. He claimed then that he was 11 years sober. I doubt it. I doubt in a single month he went from 11 years sober to dead from crack. This reminds me of Drew Barrymore and Corey Feldman, who both participated in Nancy Reagan's "Just Say No" campaign.... while they were continuing to get high. Did Goldstein's intervention show, "Gone Too Far" ever air? How ironic that a guy who dies from a drug overdose was going to help other addicts get off of drugs.

You obviously know nothing about addiction. Relapse takes the lives of recovering addicts all the time. I know people who have had over 2 decades completely sober & one day, with enough stress, something triggers the addiction in their brain. Sad fact is many people DO die relapsing their first time after many, many years clean/sober because they tend to go right back to where they left off immediately.

Adam was stressed. His girlfriend had just left him; he was a month away from the 1 yr anniversary of the plane crash that injured him severely & took the lives of 4 others; he was a humble, nice guy who faced hate messages from horribly false press when it was untruthfully stated that he sued the pilot's estates when in fact he sued their insurance companies; he recently subjected himself to holding a crack pipe in his hands all for the sake of helping someone else out of their addiction via his upcoming show. Finally, he was taking pain killers & antianxiety meds as a result of the crash. It's very hard to regulate meds when you're in recovery. With all the other triggers built up, he suddenly relapsed back to his drug of choice, which is often fatal when mixed with the prescribed drugs. Addiction is a cunning, baffling & powerful - and VERIFIABLE - disease. It is a psychological illness & a daily battle for the rest of your life, one day at a time. I have been in recovery for a while, and the tendency to revert to using under stress is constantly there. I am lucky to have survived several relapses, and grateful to be clean & sober today. Sadly, too many people, like Adam, do not.

I believe nobody here - even the haters - are bad people, despite negative comments. We are all as we are supposed to be - whether sour like lemons, spicy, sweet; all ingredients making up one big mean, each & every one of us is necessary in the grand scheme of things.

He was well-known WAY before he dated Nicole Richie among the music scene for his undeniable talent as a DJ. I knew him & he was one of the most generous, kindest, humblest men you'd ever meet. RIP Adam; you will be missed more than you know. My thoughts & prayers to your other friends & loved ones, and to everybody on here, regardless of whether your posts are positive or negative.

Dj AM should have never done that show. That show was a trigger for him to relaps. I feel that he would still be here if that show was never made. Some one who has a severe addiction problem like that should not be buying a crack pipe to show how easy it is!!! thats messed up
Rest In Peace DJ AM
