AVICII FAMILY SAYS “HE COULD NOT GO ON ANY LONGER” IN THEIR SECOND STATEMENT RELEASED.
Tim Berglin, aka Avicii, passed away just 6 days ago, with reasons “unknown”. Avicii’s family issued two statements, first statement thanking the public and his friends for honoring him. The second statement 3 days after the first one just expresses his mind state, his struggle, and being the type of person he was.
The message was originally written in Swedish, however, the second statement reads like this in English:
Stockholm, 26 April 2018
Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions.
An over-achieving perfectionist who traveled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress.
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.
He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness.
He could not go on any longer.
He wanted to find peace.
Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight.
Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed.
The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive.We love you,
This is the family’s first statement issued Monday:
We would like to thank you for the support and the loving words about our son and brother. We are so grateful for everyone who loved Tim’s music and have precious memories of his songs.
Thank you for all the initiatives taken to honor Tim, with public gatherings, church bells ringing out his music, tributes at Coachella and moments of silence around the world.
We are grateful for the privacy during this difficult time. Our wish is that it continues that way.
The Tim Bergling Family
