AVICII’S DEATH IS A WAKE-UP CALL…
REMEMBER HIM FOR HIS MUSIC
Mike Posner’s still coping with the loss of Avicii, and says the world-famous DJ’s death has been a harsh reminder for him — nothing lasts forever.
We got the singer at LAX Thursday and asked him how he feels about his hit track, “I Took A Pill In Ibiza” — known for its mention of Avicii in the second line — now that he’s gone. He tells us it definitely has a much deeper meaning now … and will always make him think of Tim.
Mike also says he wants his friend remembered for his music above all else because that’s the highest honor for musicians … and what he hopes for himself. He shares some fond memories of working with Avicii, too … even on the never-released stuff.
Read the full statement from Avicii’s family below.
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
