Wow as a Radio Announcer and a Mum this news has really saddened me this morning. Extraordinarily talented Swedish EDM star Avicii, Tim Bergling has been found dead in Muscat, Oman on Friday. He was 28. Sources went on to say "The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy".
His death comes just days after he was nominated for a Billboard Music Award for top dance/electronic album for his EP "Avicii (01)." He was nominated alongside his peers, who have taken EDM mainstream of late ” The Chainsmokers, Calvin Harris and Kygo.
In the past few years he has suffered ill health, including acute pancreatitis in part due to excessive drinking. He also had his gall bladder and appendix removed in 2014. He quit touring but told Rolling Stone that it didn't come soon enough because he was in physical pain he said "I looked at myself like, f***, you should've really stood up for yourself more there. Come on Tim!" going on to say "I needed to figure out my life. The whole thing was about success for the sake of success. I wasn't getting any happiness anymore."
RIP Aviccii and love to his family from NHM x
