On April 20th, the music industry lost a revolutionary artist whose magical chords and uplifting rhythms will be remembered by artists and fans for generations on end. Avicii, who pioneered the Electronic Dance Music genre almost ten years ago, was found dead at a resort in the Middle Eastern country, Oman.
After examining his body, police say there was zero criminal suspicion surrounding his death. Although his family would prefer that the specific cause and circumstances surrounding his death stay as private as possible, it can be assumed that it was likely related to the state of his physical health. Avicii was well known for his alcohol addiction; he suffered from chronic pancreatitis since he was an adolescent and had his gallbladder removed at the age of 22. However, regardless of the cause, Avicii’s music has been showered with an outpouring of love and recognition over the past few days, and according to Junior Hassan Malik, it is heavily apparent that “his influence on all his fans will live on forever.” In honor of Avicii, here is a compilation of his three most revered musical pieces.
