Wunh?

(followed by) I suspect that the call for privacy will be adhered to and the family will be allowed to grieve in privacy 'cos only 7 people know who TF he was.

Well, that's completely ruined my day. How famous was he...

... no seriously, how famous, because I've never heard of DJ Avgas
 
I have to confess that I did know who he was, but only by virtue of a single from a couple of years ago; 'Waiting For Love'.

How fucking hip am I?

(There's a warbly synth hook in it that sounds a bit like The Guns of Navarone.)

He collaborated with a 'Rita Ora', apparently.

. . . which sounds like a nasty throat infection.

I have to confess that I knew who he was too, because one of the most miserable, laziest cows of a barmaid would play "Wake Me Up" at least 5 times per shift at my local.

He had suffered with pancreatitis and had his gall bladder removed a few years back. He cancelled his concerts as a result of it ( I remember reading it in the papers here) I believe he was a big boozer
 
I must confess that I am another who had never heard of Avicii before. Maybe it's an age thing given that I am older than dirt.

When the TV news did a clip of Avicii's song "Wake Me Up" it was familiar as I had heard a group of Irish school kids cover it but with lyrics as gaeilge. Pretty good job by the kids.
