COLUMBIA, S.C. - Celebrity disc jockey DJ AM has been released from a Georgia hospital after suffering severe burns in a fiery plane crash a week ago, a spokeswoman for the musician said Friday.
“While he is deeply saddened by the events he is thankful for all of the love and support he has been receiving from fans and friends,” spokeswoman Jenni Weinman said in a statement.
DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, and former Blink-182drummer Travis Barker, were rushed to a burn hospital in Augusta, Ga., after their Learjet crashed on takeoff from a Columbia airport. Doctors have said they expect both men to fully recover.
Two pilots and two other passengers who were close friends of the musicians were killed in the crash just before midnight Sept. 19.
