I planned on making this weekly post related back to some sort of advertising, but realized, WOW. How cheesy is that? It’s tragic, however, that I make this first post for YRBK Music Monday about the passing of Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein who passed away this past Friday . I never really met the guy, but sometimes he’d be the DJ at the Vapors & BPM events. I remember the first time I heard an AM mix tape was in Milhouse’s Mini “Cooper” and his tape was banging an Oasis’ Wonderwall over a breakbeat. The track sounded something like this:
Years later, I had the pleasure of seeing him live twice, once with Travis Barker at Avalon and another time at the second or third week at Banana Split Sundaes at LAX. Phenomenal DJ. RIP.
