Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii, dead 20. april 2018 at the age of just 28 years.
In a great interview with Billboard tells the deceased DJ's father, Klas, about the loss of the world-famous son.
- In the time after his death we got such a beautiful response. We have not received negative messages. We opened a website where fans could communicate their feelings, and I would argue that there is a very good and positive atmosphere around Tim, and what he stood for, says the father Klas.
- He was very direct, very honest; he was fun in a very discreet way. He had a great passion for nature, animals and justice. He did not like injustice. We miss him so much.

Here are trying to create more awareness about mental illness and raise money for relevant organisations and experts ' research.
- We have great confidence to the organisations we work with. They have experts, and they are the ones who guide us. What we have focused on, is to help the two organisations to stack a 24/7, 365 days a year hotline on the legs, because it does not exist here in Sweden. It is very strange. I should not criticize the government, but we are missing it really, he explains.

He hopes that a hotline can make the difference for someone who has use for it.
