Quizá no a todo el mundo le suene el nombre de Avicii, pero seguramente conocen alguna de las canciones detrás de las que él estaba. Un productor incansable, apasionado y con mucho talento para la música nos dejaba hace unos días. Hemos perdido a un genio, pero nos ha dejado un gran legado, una reflexión importante sobre la industria musical e increíbles consejos en forma de canciones.
Para muchos era una inspiración, un amigo, un héroe, incluso un maestro. A pesar de su corta edad tenía las cosas muy claras y sabía lo que quería.
«Todos alcanzamos un punto en nuestras vidas en el que entendemos que es lo que más nos importa. Para mi es crear música. Para eso vivo, siento que nací para ello»
Estas eran sus palabras, que aún permanecen en su web. Pero no son sus palabras las únicas que demuestran lo gigante que ha sido. Artistas de todo el mundo, fans, amigos e incluso «enemigos» han querido dejar un mensaje a Tim Bergling. Incluso Twitter se colapsó al conocerse la noticia.
Os dejamos a continuación varios de los mensajes que pudimos leer:
I can‘t express how sad I am to hear what happened today.
My thoughts and my heart are with his family, his team, and his friends.
Tim you have been an icon of our scene! We will miss you!

Tim, since day one you’ve been one of my biggest inspirations to make dance music. You put Sweden on the map with the most memorable melodies in the world. I wish I could have said a few last words to you before you left this place. Millions of people will remember you forever. pic.twitter.com/oj06UoAxyK

Something really horrible happened. We lost a friend with such a beautiful heart and the world lost an incredibly talented musician. Thank you for your beautiful melodies, the time we shared in the studio, playing together as djs or just enjoying life as friends.

I have no words. I remember how amazing it was to make Lonely Together and it felt like just yesterday we were talking. Condolences to Avicii's family, friends, and the fans who supported him. May he rest in peace. Gone too soon. I’m devastated. Heartbroken.

my sincerest and most heartfelt condolences to the friends, fans and families of @Avicii 🙁 Banter aside, nobody can deny what he has accomplished and done for modern dance music and im very proud of him.
— Goat lord (@deadmau5) April 20, 2018
. @Avicii was talented and kind, and I was genuinely excited to see what would come next from him. His future most certainly should have been written beyond age 28. I am
Rest easy Tim.

Además de las despedidas emotivas pudimos ver como muchos, entre ellos Atrack o Gareth Emery, comentaban lo estresante y dura que es la vida de un DJ. Aunque públicamente solo se muestre la parte buena, como bien dice Laidback Luke en su Tweet, si queréis ver más allá no os perdáis la película de Avicii: True Stories.
— Laidback Luke (@LaidbackLuke) April 20, 2018
People think DJs just party party have fun woo and live the good life and make anthems on their laptop and yay it's another party. A lot of DJs suffer from heavy anxiety and try to cope in ways that lead to addiction. It's really sad.
— Knowledge Of Selfie (@atrak) April 20, 2018
Please remember the flashy DJ life people see from the outside is often a version of the truth – most musicians suffer from panic attacks, anxiety, and/or depression. Touring is hard. Fame is hard. We have to look after each other's wellbeing and support those who struggle.
— Dani Deahl (@danideahl) April 20, 2018
"Avicii – True Stories" – fucking hell. Everyone in this scene should watch it and reevaluate their lives, especially if you're prone to anxiety / stress / working too much. Fucking so sad dude
— Rob Swire (@rob_swire) April 22, 2018
Una de las dedicatorias más emotivas ha sido la de Ash Pournouri, el que fue su manager hasta 2016. Arash vivió con Tim todo su carrera hasta el final de sus shows. Aunque su relación laboral se dio por finalizada, aún seguían teniendo una fuerte relación de amistad.
Por supuesto no han faltado (ni faltarán) homenajes para Tim. Estos son algunos de los que hemos podido recopilar de Coachella, de la catedral de Utrecht, de conciertos, de concentraciones en las calles…

Gracias a su música, a su gran trabajo y a sus esfuerzos, muchos de nosotros hemos bailado, sonreído, nos hemos sentido bien, hemos disfrutado… Avicii (y sobre todo Tim Bergling) siempre será recordado por todos a través de sus canciones. La música nunca muere!
