Not a huge fan of the genre, but the dude made his mark a mile wide on the music industry.

Gone far, FAR too soon.

RIP

Sad.

And I don’t think so Bong. I recall him being clean a few years ago. That may have changed though.

He did quit touring for health reasons.

To be honest, I've never heard the name before, but sad to see a successful musician cut down in what appears to be the prime of his career.

If Avicii were buried, he'd be 'spinning' in his grave.

June Foray? Bob Roberston? Zarly Zalapski?

They are more worthy of RIP threads that Avicii?

I don't know if I've seen a more assholish thing on these boards than you coming in to this thread to talk about how this guy doesn't deserve a thread because you've made that determination based on your evaluation of his talents.

Talking about who does and doesn't deserve a 'RIP' thread is pretty ridiculous, but let's not confuse Avicii for being a nobody lol. 

Just because a 40 year old man who doesn't keep up with pop culture trends doesn't know who Avicii is, doesn't make him a nobody. 

Avicii has some of the most popular songs over the last few years:









You may not have heard or like that music, but all you have to do is look at the number of views they have. Avicii is big time. 

RIP

He was so popular & so in demand that he had to stop touring for health reasons.
He sold out soccer arenas when he did tour.   How many 'mainstream' musicians can say that?   Let alone while in their 20's.

He wore many hats too,   he mixed,  produced,  played piano and...... wait for it,    the guitar too!
Not liking EDM is fine,   but this is what is popular today,   hell I listen to it & I'm in my 40's.
He had about the most successful 7 - 8 year span in recent memory.   Who knows what he could've become if he lived longer.   I suspect he'll become even more popular now like other young musicians who died too young

Like I said in my first post, I didn't know him by name, either, but I read an article on the story and learned this DJ was incredibly influential in his genre, very successful, and unfortunately, very young with a long career ahead of him.

He'll move into that select group of young musicians that died way too young, like Hendrix, Morrisson, Cobain, Buckley, ect...

Rip, was never a big EDM guy but recognize what he did for the genre. Had a chance to see him in 2012 at Escapade in Ottawa but cheaped out.

Sadly, as soon as I saw this thread balloon to three pages in a short period of time, I knew we had a jack ass involved in what should have been a respectful memorial thread for a supremely talented artist who died well before his time.

I am not a fan of the genre, but suggesting "they just play on computers and I could do what they do if I felt like it" is no less ignorant and incorrect than suggesting you could win the Masters if you golfed more.

His peers discuss his legacy. Didn't know he was such a pioneer in EDM. I always thought it was Aoki and Kaskade at the forefront.
