Avicii Dead, Swedish Top DJ dies at 28:
Swedish legendary musician and Disc Jockey Avicii, real name Tim Berglin, was pronounced dead on April 20, 2018. He was aged 28
Avicii had been suffering from health problems which were severe enough to stop him from touring.
The Stockholm-born DJ was found dead on Friday in Oman. Though the cause of death has not been revealed, it can be recalled that in 2017 he stopped touring and live performances after being diagnosed with pancreatitis from excessive drinking.
A documentary titled Avicii: True Stories was also released last year, detailing Bergling’s battle with his acute pancreatitis.
The Wake Me Up crooner had both his gallbladder and appendix removed in 2014, leading to several cancelled shows as well.
Interestingly, he chose the name Avicii – which means “the lowest level of Buddhist hell” – because his real name was already taken on MySpace.
This is indeed a huge loss to the global music industry; our hearts go out to his family at this time of immense sorrow ?
