DJ AM was laid to rest on Wednesday (September 2), during a private ceremony in Los Angeles, attended by family, friends, and celebrity circle, all paying their respects.

Just six days after his death, the ceremony was held, with guests such as Travis Barker, Scott Caan, The Alchemist (who served as a pallbearer alongside his brother), DJ Jazzy Jeff, Joell and Benji Madden, Nicole Richie, and others.

Us Magazine reports:

The service was held in the mortuary and then moved outside around 4 p.m. A procession of cars followed the hearse to the back of one of L.A.’s most prominent Jewish cemeteries for the somber burial, which lasted 15 minutes.

Barker–wearing dark sunglasses and a pin-striped suit with slick-long backed hair–paid his respects and threw dirt on the coffin. After the burial, Barker, who survived a plane crash in South Carolina on September 19th of last year along with AM, walked among family and close friends.

AM will also be remembered by family and friends in a private memorial service scheduled for Thursday (Septemebr 3) at the Hollywood Palladium. It is being described as “a gathering to celebrate the life of our friend Adam Goldstein,” and will reportedly pay tribute to his struggle with addiction, with a format that will be in the style of an open 12-step meeting.

“Adam’s friends both from his life in recovery, as well as those from other areas of his life, are welcome,” said the Us Magazine report.
