Travis Barker joined DJ AM’s friends and family as he was laid to rest in Los Angeles yesterday, and for the first time since I can remember he wasn’t wearing a hat. I’m assuming the fiery plane crash has something to do with his hair being like that — just another reminder of how lucky he and DJ AM were to escape. Now, he’s the only one left. So, so tragic.
It’s being reported that DJ AM (aka Adam Goldstein) has been found dead in his New York City apartment. According to the reports, DJ AM had not been heard from or seen for several days and a friend who went to check on him got no response after knocking on his door. When police arrived, they broke down the door and found DJ AM’s body around 5:30 yesterday evening. Drug paraphernalia was reportedly found on the scene.
DJ AM and Travis Barker were the only survivors in a plane crash last September, which killed four other people. The new Final Destination movie opened yesterday, and people are starting to make creepy comparisons on Twitter. So many people have died in the last few months, that some are starting to call this “The Summer of Death”. Ed McMahon, Farrah, Michael, DJ AM…this is really, really heartbreaking.
Um, did you know they have clubs in Utah? Because I didn’t, and I’ve been there several times.
But leave it to Paris Hilton to find one, particularly one with a red carpet! The place is called AXE Fix. AXE hosts the exclusive AXE Fix Club at Sundance to celebrate the launch of their new line of transformational body washes and sprays designed to help guys fix their mind and change their game. Paris even brought her BFF Brittany Flickinger with her.
DJ AM, Lady Victoria Hervey, Aubrey O’Day and Michelle Trachtenberg were also there.
Here’s an exclusive you won’t see anywhere else: DJ AM and a mystery lady attending the New Year’s party that AM hosted with Travis Barker last night at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles.
Previously, there have been rumors floating around that DJ AM
had rekindled his romance with Mandy Moore. More recently, people have been saying that the two have broken up (again). So, the fact that he brought this chick with him to his New Year’s party might be significant.
Or maybe not. Who knows? But if she is his new slampiece, it’s a definite downgrade from Miss Mandy.
Foxtail is a club in Los Angeles, and last night it was packed with celebrities. DJ AM, who TMZ says has just filed a lawsuit against the estates of the pilots involved in his plane crash, was there. So was Sean Stewart, fresh out of Celebrity Rehab. Guess Dr. Drew didn’t do a very good job, huh?
Of course, the stud of the night was Joe Francis. DJ AM is obviously more famous, but I didn’t have a choice. I have a secret crush on Joe, which I can’t explain. I had to make his photo the leader shot. He was with a new lady friend, who is a total and complete hot mess. I love her for it.
I love that her shoes look two sizes too big, I love that her head is big and shaped like an alien’s, and I LOVE that she’s giving somebody the side eye. Even the valet guy (or is that a chick? I really can’t tell) is entralled with her. And how could (s)he not be?! I must find out who this gorgeous woman is ASAP, so that I can inundate her with fan mail.
DJ AM made his first public appearance at the Welcome Home DJ AM party at the Avalon Nightclub in Hollywood last night, and he gave our cameras the thumbs up sign. It’s sooo good to see that he’s doing better after the tragic plane crash. I’ve been sending good vibes, all hippie-like, ever since I heard about the accident.
Travis Barker is also on his way to recovery. He recently blogged that he can now move all of his fingers, a real milestone in his progress. We at MavrixOnline still wish these two nothing but the best—get well soon, guys!
Good news this morning, the medical director at the Burns Center where Travis Barker and Adam Goldstein (aka DJ AM) were taken yesterday after the horrific plane crash has announced that both are expected to make a full recovery .
Dr. Fred Mullins said that both men are being treated there in Augusta, Georgia for second and third-degree burns. Barker was burned on his torso and Goldstein, was burned on his hands and part of his head. The doctor says both men are still in critical but stable condition. He also said recovery from such burns can take as long as a year but also said that both men had no other injuries.
Musicians Ryan Meadows (left) and Nick Joiner of local band, The Eastern Terminus decided to show their support for Travis Barker and DJ AM outside of the burn center of Doctor’s Hospital, where both are being treated for severe burns. How did they do it? By staging an impromptu drum session in the parking lot in the dark! Way to go guys, you Rock!!
This is the latest statement issued by Travis and DJ AM’s publicist Jenni, “Both Travis Barker and Adam Goldstein (DJ AM) are in critical but stable conditon and are being treated at Joseph M. Still Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia after surviving a plane crash late last night in Columbia, South Carolina. The hospital will issue a statement with an update on their condition at 9:00 am eastern time tomorrow. Due to the nature of the injuries and the evolving course of treatment no further information on their condition is available at this time. The accident claimed the lives of four people on board, two of whom, Chris Baker (Lil Chris) and Charles Stills (Che), were close friends of the injured. On behalf of Travis Barker and DJ AM, deepest sympathy is expressed to the loved ones of all who perished in the crash. As the two recuperate and mourn this loss, privacy for them, their families, and friends is requested at this time”.
This is seriously one of the saddest pieces of news in quite some time. We hope more people turn out all over the country in support of these guys. Travis Barker is one of the greatest drummers of all time and DJ AM is a world renowned DJ extraordinaire. Once again, we hope they both have a speedy and safe recovery.
Our thoughts and get well wishes go out to Travis Barker and DJ AM (Adam Goldstein) and all the families involved following the tragic South Carolina plane crash that killed Barkers friends, assistant Chris Baker and security guard Charles Still as well as the pilot Sarah Lemmon and co pilot James Bland of the Learjet. Barker and Goldstein are said to have saved their own lives by jumping out of the fiery wreckage and both have severe burns and are in “critical but stable” condition at a burn center in Augusta, Ga. The duo were in Columbia, SC and had performed together under the name TRV$DJ-AM at a T-Mobile free concert on Friday night. Officials said the plane carrying six people was departing shortly before midnight when air traffic controllers reported seeing sparks. The plane hurtled off the end of a runway and crashed on an embankment across SC interstate 302, a five lane highway and was engulfed in flames, said Debbie Hersman, a member of the NTSB.
