To all the people who never heard of AM; thought he was just a loser
crackhead who didn't contribute to society and the music world, fine
it's easy to be judgemental. However for informed people Adam
Goldstein was a former member of Crazy Town, involved in the music
business since the age of 14, known internationally, an amazing
respected DJ, organizer of charity event to fight cancer. The guy saw
4 people dying in front of his very eyes, was seriously injuried. His
lifestyle was demanding and stressfull (anybody who ever worked the
night shift knows that). Most of you might not have resorted to drugs
but it's hard to comprehend the coldness and lack of compassion of
some people for someone who has done more in his short life than most
of you cold hearts will ever accomplish in your entire life!!!! R.I.P.
P.S. Funny if you died tomorrow how many people would turn up at YOUR
FUNERAL saying great things about you!

You people make me sick and reading your comments makes me realize how pathetic and twisted this world can be. You all can sit and say whatever you want but until you actually live through a plane crash or watch your friends die, or survive daily exploitation and judgement by people (like you) who have nothing better to do than sit on this site and comment on peoples lives who you have never met but somehow think you have the right to judge is discusting!! and for your own sad sake please remember that if you dont have anything nice to say then dont say anything at all. RIP AM you will be missed & my thoughts and prayers are with you travis.

Post 12.. what a sad individual you are.. If you have a career that you love to do and it entertains others then why not do it. I don't care if you are a doctor, a janitor, celebrity or homeless man. We are all put on this earth by our creator and addictions are hard to overcome. Do you honestly think this man wanted to be addicted to drugs? Do you think he wanted to live a life with pain? You obviously are alive so don't judge someone's life.. your life may change and you may go into a depression or someone you love.. I hope that doesn't happen because I don't like to see anyone in pain. Try opening your heart and mind and have some compassion. And remember one day you may have a child that could have an addiction problem and you may be a parent to lose a child.. would you want to read someone's negative nasty comment??? THINK.. Take one moment... Please

Hey joe..get a life U loser!!!
I work as a flight attendant so I fly everyday. I lost friends on Sept 11th so don't preach to me about losing someone in a plane crash. So when someone who has a good life like this loser did & throws it all away comes across my screen. I have to say "Who Freakin Cares!!" So Kiss Off...joe.

17...I wholeheartedly agree with you. Why people need to post such hateful comments, I do not know. If it was one of their friends or loved ones that passed, I am sure they wouldn't stand for such behavior. Seeing these comments left here makes TMZ look very unprofessional since it seems like the condone this behavior.

I don't know much of him, but I can't imagine what his life was like after the accident. Yes, it was a miracle that he lived, but something like that can be so haunting and painful that it makes life not worth living. I hope that he is now resting in peace.

Joe- number 17. I agree with you and you mister flight attendant... you work with people every day.. you would think being in an industry flying daily or 8 days a month you would have some compassion for others.. How dare you call him a loser.. That would be like me saying you work 8 days a month as a in air waitress.. would you like that? Hell no.. Did you know DJ AM? I don't know you so I won't call you a loser nor would I... It is sad he lost his life but he is with God our creator.. and I guarantee he wont judge him.. So you should try opening your heart..

GOD bless and he is in a good place now
