In complete shock since saturday, when we first heard the news of his illness and that he had been admitted to a hospice.....it's the inevitability of it that is so crushing...to know almost for certain what that means, but still coming to terms with something so shocking and even greater the shock, that his passing should be so tragically swift...there is no justice in life when people who you respect and love are taken for no good reason..all we have is the unfair logic that the good die first, they certainly die too young....Paul was both as well as being a great dancer, he WAS a good friend..there are a lot of places where he filled space, that will lie empty, missing his presence and charisma.....sincere and deepest sympathy to his immediate family and to his life partner, Carol....god bless and keep you, the big guy is watching over you...amen

Shocked to the core when I heard this news on fb last night, I had heard rumours that he wasn't well, I was kinda hoping that's all it was (rumours) sadly not, I can't imagine what Carol is going through right now with the loss of her Soulmate, he will be missed by many, especially his little pal Nesta. RIP Paul x.

Really sad news not seen Paul for a good few years as we didn't frequent the same soul nights, a real loss to his family and friends and a loss to all those dance floors. Hope he's spinning away up with the soul gods.

Mandy and I heard of Tall Paul's passing last night. We used to catch up with Paul and Carol at all the usual haunts Lowton, Bury, Prestwich, NCS and loads of places, always a smile and always dancing hard.  

Paul was a really, really nice bloke and personified all that is the best of the NS scene.  Having moved away from the NW a decade ago we only got to occasional doo's.  The last time we saw Paul was at the Prestwich reunion last year.  It was like we had just seen him the week before, a hug and a chat and watch him spin!!

Our hearts go out to Carole.

RIP Paul.

Ben and Mandy

Hey up Dave ,Kegs and my deepest sympathies for you Carole ....I will make it next week to see the hilarious Paul off I don't want to dwell on Paul to much only to say my funniest moment was when he roused me from my slumber a few years ago at the Bridlington Weekender I slept in Carole's camper van......we sat together on a bench looking out to sea he pulled out a joint and said "How did you sleep Dave"?......I was in hysterics as I said "What do you think !......like sh.t".....his reply was "Well you will sleep better tonight .....fancy a bit of breakfast(being an athlete I matched Paul with his appetite!!)....."Yeah that sounds good my shout "....deadpan in his innuendos around life and the Soul Scene Paul and myself  always shared a few beers whenever we met up .....I ran the recent Edinburgh Marathon and text him to say every step was dedicated to him 40mph winds greeted me on the turnaround I felt rough to say the least but the thought of Paul laughing at my predicament kept me going "Keep On Keeping On"....!!...I can see you spraying sweat all over those Soul Brother and Sisters in the dance hall in the sky....see you in the future mate it hurts me to the core we can't share a few more beers together!....regards Carole.

Real sad news always had a chat with the big fella what a gent  what a spinner never be matched ! 

First saw Paul at Prestatyne 2nd year I think, blew me away with the shear velocity of his spin, loved watching people's 

reaction when first witnessing his routine a real eye opener, like our beloved Northern soul full of deep emotion, passion, excitement ,and thrills. Also spent a great photo shoot day with Paul and Carol at Brum uni thanks to John Barrett and

Sammy Dee. Great memories will miss you Big Fella . R I P

Such sad news, Paul will be missed by so many people, I for one would always say to Jayne on our way to a venue or weekender I hope Paul and Carole will be there. I will miss spinning in a corner of a dance floor with him and then having a beer,chat and laugh.

 

Our hearts go out to a Carole and  family

RIP Paul you will be truly missed

Nice touch at Lowton,on Friday night, someone had the vision to reserve the table near the stage where Paul used to sit and placed a lit candle on it in his memory.
