"I'm not a tortured soul or anything. All the things I hold dear you could file under, 'Don't be a knobhead!’ Just go about your life and try and be nice to people. We're in an arseholes-are-winning phase at the moment. But the balance will be redressed..."

Absolutely distraught to hear this terrible news. Andrew was a longtime friend, collaborator and one of most talented persons I’ve known. Also one of the nicest. Genius is an overworked term but I’m struggling to think of anything else that defines him. https://t.co/nWlyE75bL5

So sad to hear about Andrew Weatherall. I was only listening to his mix of ‘World in Motion’ in the gym this morning and thinking how amazing it was. I worked with him many times - he was a truly nice, kind man who shared many, many words of wisdom. RIP. X

So sad about Andrew Weatherall. He remixed Sister off my last album and I’ve honestly never sounded so insanely fucking dubby in my life. Plus he was hilarious. Massive respect ❤️

So saddened at the death of #AndrewWeatherall today. I am blessed to have made music with him - his remix of 'Henry McCullough' by David Holmes & I is a stormer & his dub mix thumps majestically. Andrew, God bless you. And thank you. You were a beautiful & much-loved man. pic.twitter.com/1UEq6e8X5L
