I am a big fan of music as well as a sneaker enthusiast such as DJ AM was, it is only right that I pay my respects to DJ AM. To be totally honest I wasn't too familiar with him but to lose any one who produces great work is a tough loss. I did a Google search on the guy and checked out his accomplishments. What I found the most interesting: The Good & The Bad

DJ AM - Celebrity club disc jockey known for dating starlets, collecting hundreds of sneakers and surviving a horrific plane crash
Philadelphia native, real name Adam Michael Goldstein, former member of the band Crazy Town His work behind turntables in hotspots around the world paid him up to $25,000 or more per night -- helping fund what became a collection of more than 1,000 sneakers.

DJ AM admitted to having begun seriously abusing crack cocaine in his early 20s

last post on Twitter, dated Tuesday, DJ AM quoted a Grandmaster Flash song: "New York, New York. Big city of dreams, but everything in New York ain't always what it seems."

The things people will remembered and said about him: John Mayer tweeted, "We're supposed to lose our friends to time, at an age when we're ready to agree to the terms of having lived a long life. Not now.

"Justin Hoffman, a Las Vegas resident who was a friend of the performer says "He'd be there every single time I would call. He would be there no matter situation, he would answer calls at 5:30 in the morning. He just want to help people out."

DJ Green Lantern: 'With AM, It wasn't a party; it was an experience. "He was dope on another level. He innovated the live DJ experience a bunch of ways. His transitions from song to song were clever to the point you might be like, 'Damn, why didn't I think of that?' He did that while rocking the crowd."

DJ Khaled: I saw DJ AM play in a mansion in Miami, and he amazed me with his skills and the music he picked to make the crowd move. "He made sure everyone — I mean everyone — had a good time!"

Looks like we lost a great individual.

Once again RIP. You've inspired and will be remembered!
