    Avicii’s brother, David Bergling, had reportedly traveled to Muscat to find out more about his sibling’s death.
    Thousands have now gathered to mourn the Swedish born musician - who was known for his EDM hits Wake Me Up, Levels and Hey Brother - at Sergels Torg in central Stockholm.

    Blind Item #2



    Apparently this foreign born former A+ list performer who was retired was out one night and saw this guy all over a very young teen. Our former performer didn't know it was a child bride situation. He interfered in the pawing and abuse. The next night our performer was dead.

    Avicii is the only guess.

    Yeah nah I don't buy that. Enty made out that another celeb death wasn't as it seemed too. Can't remember who now.

    Apparently they ruled out murder. So the blind does not fit.

    Not that I believe Enty and Avicii did have his own problems but we are talking middle east so ruling out murder ... BUt then again how many Russian heart attacks happened in the last year in DC. So ...

    My brother inlaw spent this last weekend at Coachella where he said there were a lot of Avicii tributes. The videos on YouTube are awful shaky footage videos so until a good one is posted I won’t share here. Avicii documentary True Stories was just released on Netflix on April 2nd so I am trying to get a copy of it. I am probably one of the few who doesn’t have Netflix account. I watched a bunch of his live appearances on YouTube over the weekend and leaned where her got the name/moniker Avicii from:

    “Bergling explained that the name Avicii means "the lowest level of Buddhist hell" (Avīci) and he chose the moniker because his real name was already used upon creating his Myspace page”

    Another fun fact I learned- He was the only DJ to ever headline sold out shows at Radio City Music Hall.

    Enty just hit a new low. This guy had been suffering ill health and addiction for a long time so while his death may seem shocking due to his age, the cold, hard fact of it is that this is what happens to addicts.

    I find it hard to believe that blind. Avicii had a number of health problems and apparently used to drink on a daily basis.

    Quite a few of the recent celeb deaths seem to have been suicide. Sad

    The family of Swedish DJ Avicii has said the 28-year-old 'could not go on any longer and wanted peace', in an open letter published today.
    Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, was found dead in the city of Muscat, Oman, on Friday last week.
    While the cause of the DJ's death has not been made public, his parents said Thursday that 'Tim was not made for the machinery he ended up in'.



    A spokeswoman for the artist declined to confirm whether he had committed suicide. The family's letter reads: 'Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul who always carried great existential questions.
    'An overperforming perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a tempo which led to extremely difficult stress.

    'When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to feel good and be able to do what he loved the most - music.'
    'He truly battled thoughts about the Meaning, Life, Happiness.
    'Now, he could not go on any more. He wanted peace.
    'Tim was not made for the machinery he ended up in, he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans, but shunned the spotlight,' the statement read.
    'Tim, you will forever be loved and missed. Who you were and your music will carry on the memory of you.
    'We love you, the family'.
