Well, I got the memo yesterday that most of you are sick of the DJ AM coverage on the site the past couple of days, and I get it: You don’t know who he was, you don’t care who he was and he died of a drug overdose. However, there has been a reason behind all of the stories I’ve posted and that’s because we are a celebrity gossip site. We cover celebrities and their actions and interests, and DJ AM was at the heart of many celebrities lives. He was a friend and a co-worker, a confidant and system of support. Many of the people we talk about here every day have been affected by his loss, and the news reflects that. So, I will burden you with one more post and then after that I’m done unless any major news breaks on the story.
Last night Blink-182 continued their reunion tour in Hartford, CT. The whole band, but most notably Travis Barker had an extremely strong bond with AM and the two not only shared work, but they survived a plane crash together. At one point during the show, the band’s frontman Mark Hoppus paid tribute to his friend and let the audience know how hard it was for them to play that night. He concluded his tribute by holding a moment of silence in honor of his friend, and then the band went right in to playing one of their more recent hits “Down”.
