"In the burn center, they did a scan and found that I had a blood clot that in this flight could have traveled to my heart and I could have died," DJ AM (real name: Adam Goldstein), tells PEOPLE.
Goldstein, 35, says the clot was a result of his frequent flying to his various deejaying residencies at clubs nationwide. He currently has almost 2 million frequent flier miles.
While at the Joseph M. Still Burn Center in August, Ga., doctors put a filter in his vein and prescribed blood-thinning medication to prevent complications related to the clot.
"I have a great deal of faith that everything happens for a reason," he says. "I put myself in God's hands." source
DJ AM was back on the decks for the first time since surviving a fiery plane crash.
The visibly scarred celebrity disc jockey, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, joined Jay-Z at a special concert Wednesday celebrating the reopening of the Hollywood Palladium, the historic venue which once hosted the likes of Frank Sinatra, "The Lawrence Welk Show," Led Zeppelin and the Emmy Awards on its more than 11,000-square-foot circular wooden floor.
The concert was 35-year-old DJ AM's first performance since surviving a Sept. 19 plane crash with former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker at the main airport in Columbia, S.C. source
