Fan dprk7r79 expressed shock that the 36-year-old DJ, who worked with a number of music's superstars including Travis Barker and Jay-Z, had died. "It is so sad," he wrote. "He was so young and talented. RIP."

Dizzy53 tried to put the whole tragedy in perspective, given the fact that AM had survived a plane crash with Barker last fall. "Very sad news ... He got to walk away from a plane crash that killed his friends, they didn't get a second chance to see their friends and family again, to be able to touch the ones they love, but he did. And then this happens, I feel extremely bad for his family & friends who have to go thru a disaster just one year after another disaster. He was a very talented man with a lot going for him, signing the new contract and everything ... thoughts and prayers go out to his family & friends ... Nicole Richie and Mandy Moore ... R.I.P. DJ AM."
