Description

"Born Adam Michael Goldstein in 1973, DJ A.M. handled turntables for the popular rap-rock group Crazy Town during the late-'90s and early 2000s. He also became one of the most in-demand disc jockeys in Los Angeles, lending his scratching skills to albums by Papa Roach, Will Smith, and Madonna while maintaining several high-status relationships, including a brief engagement to Nicole Richie. Former blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and DJ A.M. began a series of collaborations during the decade's latter half. Following a collaborative show in September 2008, however, the two experienced a brush with death as their plane crashed upon takeoff, killing all occupants onboard except for the two musicians." -Andrew Leahey, AMG

"Before rising to the forefront of late-'90s punk-pop with blink-182, drummer Travis Barker honed his chops with the Suicide Machines and the Aquabats. Born in 1975 in Fontana, CA, Barker was urged to pursue his musical talents by his mother, who died the day before he entered high school. Barker followed her advice and eventually worked his way onto the touring roster of the Aquabats, who shared a number of tour dates with up-and-coming headliners blink-182. When blink's original drummer departed in 1998, Barker permanently joined the lineup, remaining with the highly successful band until its demise in 2005. Barker continued to work with Mark Hoppus in the band +44 while pursuing other ventures, including a hip-hop project with Rancid's Tim Armstrong and a reality show for MTV. He also released a number of remixes in 2007, putting his personal percussive stamp on Rihanna's "Umbrella" and Soulja Boy Tell Em's "Crank That."" -Andrew Leahey, AMG
