by at . Comments

Six days after his death, celebrity spinmaster DJ AM was laid to rest in a private ceremony Wednesday at Hillside Memorial Park and Mortuary in L.A.

The funeral service honoring the DJ (a.k.a. Adam Goldstein), who died last week of an apparent drug overdose, was attended by family and friends.

Ocean's 11 star Scott Caan and DJ Jazzy Jeff were on hand, along with his girlfriend Haley Wood (pictured), Nicole Richie, and Joel and Benji Madden.

DJ AM's close pal Travis Barker (also pictured) was present as well:

The Blink-182 drummer - wearing dark sunglasses and a pin-striped suit with slick-backed hair - paid his respects and threw dirt on the coffin.

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.

A memorial for the DJ AM, who was 36, is also set for Thursday.

The event will take place at the Hollywood Palladium at 7 p.m., and "the format of the evening 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," the invitation reads.

DJ AM was found dead in his apartment last Friday.
