Blink 182’s Tribute To DJ AM

August 30, 2009 / Posted by:

Blink 182 dedicated their show in Hartford, CT last night to their friend DJ AM who passed away a couple of days ago. They took a moment of silence and later handed out his CDs to the crowd.

Earlier in the day, Travis Barker, who survived a plane crash with DJ AM, Twittered his feelings:

Don’t know how I am gonna play 2night but I am for AM. My brother is gone. I love u and miss u, I’ll never forget all the good times we had.

I’ll never forget everything we’ve been through and every time I play the drums, I’ll think of you. U were an amazing friend/DJ/human being.

Rest in peace, my brother. This really fucks me up.

DJ AM’s cause of death is still not known. His autopsy was completed on Saturday, but the results were inconclusive. The Medical Examiner’s office in NYC needs to do more tests and said that it could take several more weeks before they can officially rule a cause of death. Why does it feel like we’re always waiting around for toxicology reports? This is not how anyone wanted to spend their summer.

There are several reports going around that the cops found a crack pipe in his room and also a bag of crack in his sweat pants, but none of that has been confirmed.
