Muscat, Oman. Sad news of Tim Bergling´s death spread out Friday, April 20th. The EDM musician, better known by his stage name Avicii, left this world at the age of 28 nearly missing access to the 27 Club.
So far no statement has been issued by the Heavenly Administrative House as to why the young artist was denied entrance to the club where he could have partied on with the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin or Jim Morrisson. Rumor has it, that the club has a strict rock and rollers policy, one Avicii did not comply with. “As a DJ, we understand he dedicated his time to fumbling buttons, an instrument the strict heavenly elite is still unsure about in terms of general acceptance”, divine music reviewer Elle B. Bach explains.
On the bright side, the discrimination seems to have been able to buy the young artist sometime, even if not too long, as a slot opened up in the 28 Lounge a few months after his 28th birthday.
The Heavenly Administrative House is expected to clarify the entrance requirements later this week and review remaining applications with care in an attempt to reduce bias and inequitable distribution of available places.
