Tim Bergling was born September 8, 1989 in Stockholm, Sweden. Nile Rodgers said that in terms of melody writing, Avicii was "maybe one of the best, if not the best I’ve ever worked with." Mike Einziger of Incubus said "Some of the work we did together is some of the music I’m most proud of in my whole life." Eric Clapton said he was "inspired by Avicii", and dedicated a song on his Christmas album to him. Last year Bergling's family launched the Tim Bergling Foundation, which works internationally and aims to educate people and businesses on the issues surrounding suicide and mental health.
