Avicii could not stand it anymore


The death of Avicii shocked the world of music last week. Church bells in Stockholm, the Swedish capital, played one of Tim Bergling's biggest hits this past Tuesday. His family has talked for the first time after the sad event, bringing about some certainties about the possibility of death for the renowned DJ.

The family of the Swedish DJ Avicii, who was found dead last week in Muscat - capital of Oman - at the age of 28, said on Thursday that the artist had problems with life and that he "could not go on any longer". In the first public comment after the musician's death, whose cause has not been revealed, the family has written in a statement: "Avicii struggled and reflected on the meaning of life and happiness." He could not take it anymore. He wanted to find peace”. The statement suggests the idea that he took his own life. Avicii's representative, Diana Baron, did not want to comment further.

The DJ, whose real name was Tim Bergling, was one of the biggest stars of electronic dance music. After being found dead in Muscat last Friday, no cause of death was disclosed, although since 2015 his state of health due to fatigue caused several cancellations until his official withdrawal from the music world was announced in March 2016, with a final session as a DJ in Ibiza that same month. Is is known that Avicii declared that he was withdrawing from music due to the difficulties of his lifestyle.

"Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An over-achieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress", the family wrote in the text. "When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most - music." The statement added. Tim Berling called himself Avicii for the term 'avici', which in Buddhism represents the lowest level of hell, in which people who have committed major sins can be reborn.

A friend of Berling was the one who told him the meaning of the Buddhist term 'avici'. The avici is not an eternal place for Buddhists, but rebirth at this level is the longest of all there is. Berling liked the word and wanted to use it on MySpace, a disused social network owned by Specific Media LLC. However, the name 'avici' was already in use on this social network and Berling had to add another letter i to his username on MySpace: then Avicii was born. Later, when he began to step on stage as a DJ, Berling continued to use his alias, an artistic name that has accompanied him forever.
