Dj Am Makes First Official Appearance Since Crash

ADAM 'DJ AM' GOLDSTEIN made his first big public appearance at a benefit concert held in his honour on Tuesday (14Oct08), less than a month after surviving a fatal plane crash.
The Los Angeles DJ and entrepreneur is still recovering from the South Carolina tragedy, which left four people dead and pal/bandmate Travis Barker in critical condition last month (19Sep08).
But he is easing himself back into showbusiness and turned up at the special concert, dubbed 'Welcome Home DJ AM', which aimed to raise funds for the victims of the tragedy.
A host of celebrity DJs, including Mark Ronson, Steve Aoki, Danny Masterson and Mixmaster Mike rallied together for the show, with tickets selling for $20 (GBP10.80) each. Guests included Hilary Duff, will.i.am and actor Chris Masterson.
And Goldstein's pals were stunned at how well he is recovering.
Rocker Cisco Adler, a close pal of the 35-year-old, says, "I've known him since we were kids. I just saw him for the first time (since the crash) and it was literally an amazing moment."
Another artist friend, Simon Rex, has also praised Goldstein's rapid recovery, adding, "I hung out with Adam the other day, he's home, and he's doing great. (But) Adam is still I think in shock. He can't believe what happened. It's a miracle."
Barker is still receiving treatment for his burns at a Los Angeles hospital, and was therefore unable to attend.
Goldstein is due back onstage supporting rap heavyweight Jay-Z when he plays the Palladium Theatre in Hollywood on Wednesday night (15Oct08).
