28: GAWN TOO SOON: RIP Avicii and Brian Jones

On Eavesdroppin’ comedy podcast this week, Geordie & Michelle look at two musicians gone too soon…

Do you remember Avicii? The Swedish superstar DJ with number 1 hits all over the world? Geordie doesn’t, but this week, Michelle takes a look at his life and legacy and digs into why he was gawn too soon. Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, was one of the most successful DJs on the planet, yet by age 28, he was found dead in Oman, having taken his own life. So how did a kid from Stockholm become one of the most successful DJs and songwriters of all time? Why did he stop touring? And what were the circumstances in the lead up to his death? Listen now to find out!

Geordie then looks at the intriguing death of founding Rolling Stones member, wild man Brian Jones. On July 3 1969, Brian was found dead on the bottom in his Sussex country-house pool. Although the official cause of death was drowning by misadventure, the conspiracy theories are continuously cranked out as to what REALLY happened to Brian on the night of his death. Did handyman Frank Thorogood (yes, we know we call him Paul throughout the episode ????) murder Brian? Was he depressed and took his own life? Was he the victim of ritual sacrifice? Geordie dives into the heady rock n roll days of the late 60s to reveal a few of the more popular Brian Jones conspiracy theories….

So pop on your headphones, grab a brown lemonade and join Geordie & Michelle for this week’s episode, plus chit-chat about Glastonbury, Billy Bragg, lots of band recs and more, only on Eavesdroppin’ podcast. And remember, wherever you are, whatever you do, just keep Eavesdroppin’!
