DJ AM Remembered on West 3rd Street

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Found above Travis Barker's store, The Fast Life, at West 3rd and Crescent Heights is a new billboard. It's "in loving memory" of DJ AM, who died in August of a drug overdose. Last year, AM and Barker survived a plane crash that left the store's manager, Chris Baker, dead. A sidewalk memorial was set up in front of the store after that.

An Ebay auction of his sneaker collection began on Sunday. Proceeds will benefit the DJ AM Memorial Fund.
