By livefromkyoto Go To PostApparently the guy drank so much he needed to have organs removed and had to retire from touring.Can't even imagine drinking that much constantly to the point you would have to remove organs. Crazy how some people live.
How much does someone have to drink to get that? I've known alcoholics in my life who didn't manage that.

There's no way this guy did more to himself than Keith Richards, and he's still walking around at 74.
Having watched the documentary about him (made last year) you can see how his anxiety attacks made him mix pills with alcohol. He just couldnt handle the raise to fame that quickly and mostly wanted to just produce his music.
His family have released a statement that implies that it was suicide.
Our beloved Tim was a searcher, a crazy artist who always cared for great existential issues. An overachieving perfectionist who traveled and worked hard at a pace that led to extremely difficult stress.
When he finished the tour he wanted to find a balance in life to feel good and be able to do what he loved most -music.
He really struggled with thoughts about the meaning, life, happiness.
Now he no longer could bear it.
He wanted peace.
Tim was not made for the machinery he ended up in. He was a handsome guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight.
Tim, you will forever be loved and missed.
The one you were and your music will bear the memory of you onwards.
We love you,
