Carl Cox About Mental Health: “I’m Fine, But I’m Not Happy”


Famous DJs may have money and fame, but at the end of the day, they are human and they deal with the same issues as the rest of us. No amount of money can solve mental problems.

One of the most charming DJs in the business. A musical ambassador and a veteran of acid house, a champion of techno, a dance music pioneer, label boss, and king of Ibiza, Coxy shared his story about mental health, as edm.com shares.

In a new interview with Music on my Mind, a campaign created to raise funds and awareness for mental health in the music community.

Carl is facing some of the most daunting challenges of his career, some of which were contrived by the pandemic. “40 years of working really hard as a self-employed DJ. I’ve been around the world like you can’t believe and I’ve made millions of people happy,” he said. “Since then, my father has died… my mother has died… I’m in Australia and now I don’t have a job as a DJ… which is my craft and what I’ve set up for. And now, in the UK, they’re telling us to go get another job because ‘you’re industry is not coming back.’ Now you’re asking me how I am. I’m fine, but I’m not happy,” he said with a laugh.
