"Everyone knows that I've been anxious and everything, and that I've been trying," he said.

"I think it's brave of him to open up that way," said Tim's father, Klas Bergling.

CBS This Morning co-host Anthony Mason recently spoke with Klas in his first U.S. broadcast interview. He said he wanted his son to be remembered "as a good person, as a good producer. He had a good heart."

"You must have been proud to see that?"

"Oh, yeah, sure. Of course."

Klas and his wife, Anki, saw the first signs of Tim's anxiety when he was a teenager: "When you have a child that's not feeling well, you try everything to get the situation right again. And you try to understand what's going on. So, we went to a psychiatrist. I think he was 14 or 15, yeah. And he sort of calmed Tim down."

As Tim's career took off, Klas stayed involved, running his son's business: "Yeah, I did. I kept the books. I ironed his, you know, what do you say, receipts?"

As Avicii, Tim traveled the world, performing up to 250 shows a year. Klas said, "He was a very determined guy. He went all-in."
