Club-owner and celebrity scratcher Adam Goldstein, who was far better known by the moniker DJ AM, was found dead Friday morning in his New York apartment, E! News has confirmed. He was 36.

Details have been sparse so far, but the New York Fire Department has confirmed that a body was discovered at Goldstein's Lafayette Street address at 5:24 p.m. and was pronounced dead at 6 p.m. The body was not transported from the scene afterward.

The New York Post, citing NYPD insiders, have reported that drug paraphernalia was found near the body.

Goldstein, who along with Travis Barker survived a fiery plane crash that killed four others last year, had recently finished shooting an eight-episode series for MTV about addiction, Gone Too Far, in which he opened up about his past struggles with substance abuse.

Within minutes of the news breaking, Barker's ex, Shanna Moakler, had tweeted: "My deepest condolences for DJ AM, you were a great artist and will be severely missed. My thoughts and Prayers to his family and friends."

So sad!!  I just don't get why famous people have to do so many drugs.  He had a second chance in life after the plane crash but I guess he didn't look at it that way.....

I can imagine that addiction would be very hard to overcome...especially after seeing people die and almost dying yourself.

I believe he had some serious burns from the crash - 3rd degree.  It would be awful if he had gotten himself clean, and then had to take pain meds because of the burns.  Just guessing about him, but a lot of people have fallen off the wagon that way.
