Spotlight: DJ AM
He may have been best known for working the celebrity club scene, dating starlets including Nicole Richie and Mandy Moore, and his huge sneaker collection, owning about 1,000 pairs.
He also barely escaped death in a September 2008 plane crash in South Carolina. Four people died. DJ AM was critically injured, as was his pal, Travis Barker, the former Blink-182 drummer.
"I can't believe I made it," DJ AM told People magazine. "I've prayed every night for the past 10 years. There's a lot more to thank God for now. ... I was saved for a reason. Maybe I'm going to help someone else. I don't question it. All I know is I'm thankful to be here."
Reportedly he admitted to past addictions to crack cocaine. According to New York's WPIX, prescription drug bottles were found near his body in his apartment.
