DJ AM Attends Memorial for Plane Crash Victim
Adam Goldstein made his first public appearance since suffering burns in a jet crash on September 20, paying his respects to Chris "Lil' Chris" Baker, who was killed in the accident.
Services for Baker were held in Los Angeles on Monday -- with more than 300 people honoring the 29-year-old, sharing stories and memories of Baker for two hours. The disc jockey donned green -- Baker's favorite color -- like the rest of the attendees, at the request of Chris' wife, Otillia Villar.
Chris was Travis Barker's assistant and close confidante. Barker, was released from a burn center yesterday and is currently en route to L.A. on a bus. "Travis felt so bad to have missed it," a source reveals to People magazine.Travis reportedly opted for a bus back to California because, according to a source, he refuses to fly.
Goldstein's friend DJ Hollywood told "Extra" he doesn't think that his pal has the same feelings. "I personally don't think it's going to hinder him from getting on a plane anytime soon."
Baker is survived by his wife and son Sebastian, 2.
