R.I.P Avicii

This is shocking!!! I can’t believe we’ve lost another young creative and musician. He managed to surpass the famous ‘27 club‘ only by a year. I really thought my eyes were deceiving me when I read this news. Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, was found dead in Oman on Friday which was confirmed by his representative. His representative has said, “It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”

I’m not really into EDM but I remember when I first heard and saw the video for ‘I could be the one‘ which I still play to this day; I loved the concept of the video and I still bang that song out to this day. He’s also well known for his chart topping songs ‘Wake Me Up,’ ‘Hey Brother‘ and ‘Levels‘.

Over the years, Avicii has suffered with numerous health problems and had to retire from doing live performances as he wasn’t well enough to. He continued to do work and provide new music.
