DJ AM - real name Adam Goldstein - died from a suspected accidental overdose on August 28 2009 and Blink-182 drummer Travis posted a sweet message on his Instagram along with a picture of them both together.

We went thru so much together ... The highest of highs and the lowest of were one in a million. Rest in power Adam I love you, till we rock again.... #DjAMFOREVER (sic)."

In 2008, Travis and Adam were the only survivors of a plane crash which killed four people, including Travis' assistant and security guard.

The twin-engine private Learjet overran the runway during take-off and skidded through a perimeter fence.

It then caught fire and both men were reportedly left with extensive burns.
