    Swedish singer Avicii dead at 28

    Drank himself to death at age 28. I will never understand the obsession with booze.

    In AA, they say that success is an Alcoholic's worst enemy. I guess it's true.
    Any day above ground is a good day.

    Maybe he was predisposed to illnesses aggravated or accelerated by alcohol.
    If it was alcohol poisoning, I get that - too much too fast.

    He had actually seen the light and gave up. He had been sober for a few years but like usual, it seems the damage was already done.

    A hell of lot, I would say. Just so sad that someone so talented gets taken over by the alcohol demon and does so much damage to themselves. RIP.

    I don't know - maybe you haven't given it a proper try.

    Probably for the best.
    I tried being too fond of it for a while.

    I don't really recommend it.

    TMZ are now reporting he used a piece of broken glass to kill himself. One source said he slashed his neck and another said it was his wrists.

    Damn.
    Seems like that would take some determination.

    I read that this morning as well, so what's the truth?? I'm thinking it was suicide but the quantity of alcohol he had consumed in his life certainly wouldn't have helped.

    There's another story going around on some blind sites saying he got involved in something he shouldn't and paid the price for it and his brother was supposedly also told to stop digging but it's more than likely just another of these conspiracy things that usually pop up when someone dies in this kind of manner.

    Personally, I think it's exactly what it says on the tin. From what I remember of the statement his family posted, they didn't seem that surprised so my best guess is things got the better of him again and this time he didn't have it in him to fight it.
