The first million-dollar DJ, Adam Goldstein—known to most of the world as DJ AM—landed huge endorsement deals, roles in Iron Man 2, Entourage and DJ Hero, and residencies in the world’s biggest clubs. But behind the scenes, he was dedicated to both his own recovery from a long-term battle with addiction and helping other young addicts do the same. In 2009, along with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, he narrowly escaped death after a plane crash. Left in extreme pain, he developed a dependence upon pain medication and less than a year later was found dead from an apparent overdose. Featuring interviews with friends and contemporaries such as Jon Favreau, Mark and Samantha Ronson, Mix Master Mike, Steve Aoki and Diplo, As I AM: The Life and Times of DJ AM is a fascinating and moving exploration of the life of a young man who forever changed his industry and the people around him.
