R.I.P. DJ AM
2009 - the year of the celebrity deaths. I don't know why, but this year has been a heavy one for celebrity fatalities. You would have to have been living under a rock to not know about Michael Jackson's death, all the famous footballers and actresses and you've got a pretty high celebrity death toll; now add to that one of the best DJs on the planet, DJ AM (who had already survived a horrific plane crash with Travis Barker last year).
His body was apparently found by police in his home in NYC. Cause of death is currently unknown as the story has only just broken and is still developing, but rumours are already abounding that it was the result of an overdose.
EDIT: According to TMZ, "drug paraphernalia was apparently found at the scene".
Whatever the cause of death, he will be sorely missed, an extremely talented DJ and by all accounts a genuinely safe guy.
