Funeral held for DJ AM


NEW YORK (JTA) — Family and close friends attended the funeral for the Jewish celebrity DJ AM.

DJ AM, whose real name was Adam Goldstein, was buried Wednesday at Hillside Memorial Park and Mortuary, a Jewish cemetery in West Los Angeles.

Goldstein, 36, was found dead in his New York apartment on Aug. 28.

Among the mourners at the funeral was Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, who had performed with Goldstein under the name TRVSDJAM. Both had been seriously injured a year ago when the plane they were traveling in following a performance in South Carolina crashed on takeoff.

A memorial service for Goldstein at the Hollywood Palladium is scheduled for Thursday.

A drug overdose is suspected as the cause of Goldstein’s death. He reportedly struggled with drug addiction in the past.
