The Daily Grind Video


On August 25th, in what would now be his last public communication, DJ AM wrote on his Twitter, ‘New york, new york. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york aint always what it seems.’



In DJ AM’s last known interview posted on 8-26 he almost breaks down while talking about his home town Philly, PA

What has your connection to Philadelphia been since you moved from here?

AM: I have always stayed in touch with my sister who still lives there and I get back there at lease every 2 months just to take a walk and remember my childhood. I love that city. Damn, bout to start crying! I am a mush ball when it comes to Philly!



AM emailed his friend several months ago and disclosed that he was dealing with depression. AM believed it was a result of trying to stop taking pain medication since his tragic plane accident. Other reports state that AM was found laying on the floor shirtless next to prescription pill bottles and a pipe commonly used to smoke drugs when the medics arrived. Goldstein’s publicist issued a statement saying, “Adam ‘DJ AM’ Goldstein was found deceased this afternoon in his New York City apartment. The circumstances surrounding his death are unclear. Out of respect for his family and loved ones, please respect their privacy at this time.” Sadly in todays day and age, I’m not sure there is a such thing as privacy anymore.
