We can't believe DJ A.M. — a.k.a. Adam Goldstein — overdosed on drugs and died three years ago Wednesday.
On Twitter, tons of friends, family, and loyal fans continue mourning his passing. They even had #djam trending at one point!
Blink-182 drummer, Travis Barker remains one of the most deeply affected.
He barely survived a plane crash with Adam back in 2008 and today he credits his sobriety to his absent friend.
Wish AM was still here for many reasons.He tried for years to get me sober & I was a dumpster & couldn't see thru the fog.

See how other celebs are remembering DJ A.M. … AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Travis Barker is terrified to fly!
And can you blame him?
His plane crashed a few years back and killed everyone onboard except for him and DJ A.M.
It's nothing to hang his head over. There are a TON of phobias, and the Blink-182 drummer doesn't suffer from the majority of them.
Aichmophobia, for example, is the fear of needles but Travis is stained with more ink than Gutenberg's printing press!
Still, he wants to conquer his fear because
Such a nice way to honor him, we think.
Starting today, SiriusXM’s BPM Channel will air a weekend-long tribute to the late, great DJ A.M. The station will run tons of DJ AM’s own work, including many of his best mixes, such as “Elton Mixes,” “Banana Split Mixes,” “Fix Your Face Volumes 1 & 2,” as well as some previously unheard and unreleased mixes.
Fans will also hear a series of tributes to DJ AM from his friends, including Steve Aoki, DJ Vice, A-Trak and more.
For someone who really appreciated music the way he did, we bet he'd think this was pretty rad!
More money problems for the late DJ AM.
The executors of Adam Goldstein have been hit with a bill by officials at the State of California Franchise Tax Board, asking for more than $88,000 in unpaid taxes from 2006 and 2007.
Goldstein passed away on August 28, 2009 and reportedly had assets worth up to $4 million, however, his debts totaled to $2.9 million.
Even in death, you can't escape paying your taxes.
Rest in peace no longer, DJ AM. Apparently, your place stinks!
A former neighbor of the now dearly departed DJ is suing the star's estate, claiming that a piece of property owned by AM smelled so bad, it literally made other people sick.
The neighbor, Isaac Toveg, filed his suit with the L.A. County Superior Court and claims that while he lived near the deceased star, he often noticed a "gaseous foul odor and/or smell" emitting from the property from a broken sewer line. Toveg claims that when he would go outside, he would "experience problems in breathing and stomach ailments and would become severely ill." He even has documentation proving he was diagnosed with Helicobacter pylori.
Okay, that sucks, but shouldn't you have said something a little earlier. Like, before the poor guy passed away.
Well, supposedly, according to Isaac's suit, he did tell AM about the problem, but it was ignored. Now he wants $25k in damages.
Jenni Weinman, a rep for AM's estate, was quick to respond to the lawsuit, saying:
"It’s ironic that this suit was filed so close to the year anniversary of Adam's passing. I am sure that any issues regarding the drainage system or sewer pipes in the neighborhood are more of a city maintenance issue as opposed to a DJ AM estate issue.”
Hmm, that is kind of sketchy.
Also, has it really been a whole year almost?! Wow….sad.
DJ AM's mother Andrea Gross has filed a $1 million lawsuit against YTK Investments, LLC, claiming that they've used her son's name to promote their venues while also refusing to hand over his share of the profits.
DJ AM aka Adam Goldstein became part-owner of one of their Vegas nightclubs LAX back in 2005 and had a contract with the company that stated he would receive 45.5% of YTK's profits and also granting executives a "limited, non-exclusive licence to use Mr. Goldstein's name and likeness" to promote the club.
Gross filed papers at the Los Angeles Superior Court this past week, citing a breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty, misappropriation of likeness and unfair business damages.
