Avicii Dead - DJ & Music Producer Dies at 28

Avicii has sadly passed away at the age of 28.

The DJ and music producer, whose real name was Tim Bergling, was found dead on Friday (April 20) in Oman.

“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” his reps said in a statement. “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. 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.”

Avicii retired from performing in 2016 because of his health. Some of his biggest hits included “Levels,” “Wake Me Up,” and “Hey Brother.”

    Oh wow, this really hit me. Can’t find proper words. Rest in peace…

    (on another note, he was the first artist in a long, long time to make me leave my musical comfort zone and enjoy other genres. His songs always had this nostalgic yet vibrant vibe full of life and adventure…)

    Sad to say that it was his family that sent him to an early grave. No one, unless they were abused as a child, drinks to the point that their organs fail. Child abuse is an epidemic. Blame his parents.
