Paul on musician, composer, arranger and record producer Allen Toussaint:
"Sorry to hear that Allen Toussaint died after a concert in Spain. Having worked with him in New Orleans I know what a sweet and gentle guy he was and a massive songwriting talent with songs like ‘Fortune Teller’, ‘Southern Nights’, 'Working in the Coal Mine' and 'Play Something Sweet (Brickyard Blues)'. His songs will be cherished by people like me who will have fond memories of Allen forever.
"Deepest sympathies and love to his family from me and my family."
