Fans and celebrities alike are mourning the death of music DJ and producer Avicii.

The Swedish born Dj whose real name was Tim Bergling rose to international fame in 2011 with the song Le7els which catapulted him into the mainstream.

Since then Avicii would travel the world performing night after night and apparently with his new found success he also fell into a nightly habit of drinking copious amounts of alcohol which caused him a series of health issues.

While there is no mention at this time what led to his death, it is known that back in 2014 Avicii suffered from acute pancreatitis in part due because of his drinking and had to had his gallbladder and appendix removed.

Avicii traveled and performed all over the world including El Paso back in 2012 when he performed at Buchanan’s Event Center.
