    Successful people's lives are so easily taken for granted. People think that because they live large they are happy and are enjoying life. That's not always the case. That's what caused his death, because since everyone thought nothing was wrong with him, they completely ignored his cries for help. Heartbreaking 😢

    I'm sure if someone does some real police work like they should we would se the real story behind all these PEOPLE dying from so called suicide. Rip Chester; Amy; Avicii; Curt. Rip Robin Williams because I am a fan. I don't believe the suicide bull shit!

    If you are a artist and do songs do you really have to have concerts? I mean atists do music because they like the ”doing music” part (and many like the consert stuff, all people is different) so Why do they have to have conserts if they don’t like it? I mean it is clear in this video that he did not want to do it anymore. I don’t know how he feelt about the ”making music part”. I mean if you are a real fan of someone let it do what they need to do and respect them. I’m so bad at writing But hope you take it the right way

    he's probably better off where he is than having pancreas problems as we go into a prolonged period of v bad weather (can't call bad weather by it's proper name because youtube will remove mention of it to ensure the rest of you remain in your zombie bubbles until it's too late)

    Truly sickening what they did to him. His manager that busted him to Levels and then wouldn’t let him go. It’s like what antonio salieri did to Mozart In Amadeus.

    OMG he needed rest and so many hugs from people who took him (and not his work) serious. I see such a huge difference between these hospital video's and the ones from Martin Garrix. Martijn has people around him saying; 'Just don't do it, take rest, heal'. Tim they gave quick fixes and they pushed him hundreds of kilometres over his limit.

    He died because of messed up American medical system that made him an opioid addict after a casual surgery. Doctor who prescribed him Percocet that eventually killed him is responsible for it

    I was using drugs and a lot alcochol for 2-3 years, and was so naive to think what I can do this party shit all my Life. Later I was same bad condition like avicii was. And I want to ask: does avicii has free will do that crazy rhings or not? Nobody force him to use alcochol or drugs. In documentary he said: my plans was to use alcochol for decades like other DJ's. But his health just say early NO! I can always say: I am using alcochol, because I am a lot of working, having problems in family, a lot of traveling, but who cares about that? I should just finish that or not. Why we always want to put all our anger on one man, like Ash was responsible for everything in avicii Life?

    I was born April 20 th 1951 ,its said to be Hitlers birthday also but im truly saddened at this young man death and he wasn't given any support dealing with chronic health probs ,but pushed to do more even after him telling you that he just can't go on , these people are only looking out for their own gains and nothing else !!! Sososo sad indeed ! 🤔😑😐😯😩😔

    This only proved his anxiety had more to do with the abusive nature of his career that he self-medicated when nobody gave him the time to get the proper help he needed

    His management should be tied to a pole and shot. The sickening thing they are properly making more money now that he is dead.

    Martial arts would've helped Tim. Kickboxing, jiu jitsu, some muay thai, a little bit of judo, and a smidge of wrestling. He'd have a different outlook on these scenarios. He would've been more assertive in his needs, rather than let these bullies control him.

    Very sad. It’s awful how destructive addiction is and can affect anyone, regardless of who they are. I can understand alcohol use, because it helps the process. But never more than 2 days in a week. This poor chap was a 24/7 and alcohol became a daily routine. Anyone who goes down this road will only have 10 years. It’s sad, but the internal organs just die. The body needs to repair and when it doesn’t get a chance, then is dangerous ground. I could imagine the pain from damaged organs is excruciating.
    You would say this. Wake up, jump on a plane ✈️, go to a deserted island 🌴 and just stop 🛑. But the poor chap had the world 🌎 on his shoulders. He had no down time and became an workaholic. Even his holiday to Oman was a fiasco. Wasn’t a holiday, more like a meet and greet.
    Fame to early is never good, unless you have a family oriented base that’s very grounded. He lived a full life in 10 years. He condensed everything. God bless him. His light 💡 burned bright.

    His fame and success got him killed, like a curse. Its like a silly cliché from a movie, but its true. If he had been a "normal" person he would have never felt this pressure to perform and had this kind of drinking problem.

    That manager is a very unlikeble prick, an amateur who was way out of his depth and used this poor kid to death!
