London DJ Paul 'Trouble' Anderson dies
Paul "Trouble" Anderson, the longtime London DJ and radio host, has died.
Anderson's friend and Mi-Soul Radio colleague, Gordon Mac, announced his passing in a Facebook post today. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to Paul's nearest and dearest," Mac writes. "He will be sorely missed by the entire Mi-Soul family and by all that had the privilege to see him live." Anderson's family later confirmed the news in a statement on Facebook: "It's with a really heavy heart that we have to post the news of our dear brother, father and grandfather passing. He died peacefully this morning and not before he played every track on the album of his life... Thank you for your love, prayers and support. Every time you filled the dance floors to his boogie you filled his heart with joy."
Anderson was diagnosed with cancer in his left lung in 2011 and was in remission until earlier this year when tumours were discovered in his brain and his right lung. In August, Anderson's family and friends began crowdfunding to raise money for his cancer treatment. The campaign reads, "It's our chance to give something back to this very special man who has given us so much."
Anderson's friends, family and colleagues, as well as members of the local scene, have been sharing tributes to the Kiss FM DJ on social media today. Read their kind words below.
