During a recent interview with BBC Radio 1 Carl Cox spoke out about the late Avicii.

Following the news of Avicii being found dead, Carl Cox admits he was “very, very sad because I could see he was not in control of himself.”

When Danny Howard asked Carl Cox about the mental health crisis, Carl Cox said “We used to hang out backstage but he was a guy on his own, he didn’t have much of an entourage. It was just business, business, business all the time. It was too much, even for a young guy,” said Carl Cox. “The pressure was put on him and he was in trouble mentally. It was very sad to see someone who had so much to offer take his life. He just wanted to be free to make music.”
