Devastating news about Avicii, a beautiful soul, passionate and extremely talented with so much more to do. My heart goes out to his family. God bless you Tim x— Calvin Harris (@CalvinHarris) April 20, 2018
"I know I am blessed to be able to travel all around the world and perform, but I have too little left for the life of a real person behind the artist," he had said in 2016. He was reportedly suffering from acute pancreatitis, partially because of heavy drinking.
