DJ AM Takes To The Stage
October 16, 2008 at 5:39 AM (PT)
DJ AM, the visibly scarred celebrity disc jockey, whose real name is ADAM GOLDSTEIN, joined JAY-Z at a special concert WEDNESDAY celebrating the reopening of the HOLLYWOOD PALLADIUM, the historic venue which once hosted the likes of FRANK SINATRA, "THE LAWRENCE WELK SHOW," LED ZEPPELIN and THE EMMY AWARDS on its more than 11,000-square-foot circular wooden floor.
The concert was 35-year-old DJ AM's first performance since surviving a SEPTEMBER 19th plane crash with former BLINK-182 drummer TRAVIS BARKER at the main airport in COLUMBIA, SC.
Two pilots and two other passengers were killed, including BARKER's assistant, CHRIS BAKER. After the crash, DJ AM received two skin-graft surgeries on his neck and arm.
