The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Bryony Gordon’s Mad World: Måns Mosesson, author of ‘Tim The Official Biography of Avicii’ | Podcast” – below is their description.
To his millions of fans, he was Avicii – music producer and DJ extraordinaire who created some of the most anthemic dance music of recent years. But behind the global superstar DJ was Tim Bergling, an anxious boy from Sweden who first saw a therapist at the age of 14, and years later tragically took his own life.
Swedish journalist Måns Mossesson was given extraordinary access by Tim’s parents to the artist’s friends, family and colleagues, as well as his texts and emails to write ‘Tim’, the biography of a man whose battles with mental health will resonate with many. Måns joins Bryony to talk about how he hopes the book lets us meet Tim, rather than Avicii, and how Tim’s story is so much more nuanced than a tale of the evils of fame, money and the music industry.
Please note that this episode contains discussion about suicide and suicidal thoughts.
