So I Was Wrong

I guess DJ AM didn't get quite as crispy as I expected. I read on Yahoo that he was back behind the decks last night spinning for Jay-Z at the Palladium in Hollywood and is expected to return to his residency at Pure next week.
Apparently he only had to get 2 skin grafts on his neck and arm and though scarred, doesn't look as bad as he could have. This means my theory was wrong and my friend Steve is probably right in a case of the student still not being able to snatch the grasshopper from the master's hand. Steve thought that AM would return to the decks and due to increased fame would command a higher price tag. I dunno what DJ AM's fees are, but I suspect Steve is probably right.
The funny part though is this guy isn't that amazing as far as DJs go, he's got famous not for his skill originally, but because he was banging Nicole Ritchie. A fiery plane crash with Travis Barker though way outweighs doing a famous stick figure hence how he is pretty much a household name now. The funny part is just that no matter how famous he gets, he's still not that good in my opinion. Sure he co-headlines and has a nice thursday residency at Caesar's Palace but a residency at the Palace is not the highest thing you can get in Vegas. My boy Alan had a residency at The Palms before he moved here to Denver, Palms>Palace.
Speaking of moving to Denver, it is starting to feel like Denver is getting more and more respect as an EDM city these days, purely because this place is home to Beatport and Beta...Well, Beta being the club extension of Beatport. A couple weeks ago, Benny Benassi came to town and this December we're getting fucking Tiesto. Local raves usually include super-elite headliners such as Bad Boy Billl and Jes. We're no New York or Detroit, but it's still better than one would expect from a city like Denver.
