    RIP Hoops. I didn't get to know you really, but you were always a presence during FAWM that I will remember as I started my songwriting journey.

  • @chasingandromeda  Feb 2017

    Hoops...you aren't here and yet, you are. That is the power of music, in general, and the power of the music you made specifically. Play on, wherever you are.

  • @ajna1960  Feb 2017

    I didn't know hoops very well, but I know that he will always live here in FAWM and through the wonderful collabs that will (hopefully) never, ever end 😀

  • @ajna1960  Feb 2017

    @izaakalexander please don't click unwatch, as there are many wonderful collabs appearing here 😀

  • @izaakalexander  Feb 2017

    Gone, but not forgotten. Truly missed now, but I'm so very thankful for what we shared here. As I click 'Unwatch' I feel like crying.

  • @stephenwordsmith Feb 2017

    I am so very, very sad that you are no longer with us. There are a thousand masterpieces that will never be heard , and a thousand kind comments that will never be read, and I will miss them terribly.

    However, your presence on these forums will never die. You have inspired me to be the Hoops I want to see in the world.

  • @whisperedcandles  Jan 2017

    You are missed.

  • @karlsburg25  Jan 2017

    Big love to all the hoops clan and here is to me attempting at least two rather uncharacteristic time signature tunes in your honour.x

  • @mikedebenham  Jan 2017

    Ah, Hoops. I'll miss you.

  • @arcturusecho Jan 2017

    Wishing you were still here and believing you may cast a smile down on the rest of us. Rest in peace.

  • @karan  Jan 2017

    Oh Hoops ... I hope you smile upon us. May you be well, wherever you are now!

  • @vikkiflawith  Jan 2017

    Missing you x

  • @cloudboy  Jan 2017

    Sending you love and light on your journey through the universe.

  • @petra777  Jan 2017

    RIP....wish you were here to join us...send us lots of good creating vibes from above...

  • @debs  Jan 2017

    Hi Hoopsicle. <3 I logged in and came here, first. I miss you. We all do.

  • @isaacq  Jan 2017

    so much love

  • @tcelliott  Jan 2017

    It's just not the same now.

  • @sentense  Jan 2017

    Unforgotten. Miss you, my friend.

  • @billysea  Jan 2017

    Rest easy hoops. Miss you terribly.

  • @mikegtz  Jan 2017

    Hail to the grand master, sorry you are gone!

  • @joshbelville  Jan 2017

    miss you hoops. 😞

  • @rosedeschamps  Jan 2017

    We miss you.

  • @adforperu  Jan 2017


  • @clioem  Jan 2017

    Missing you, Paul.

  • @popmythology  Jan 2017

    Just found out about this today... I knew you only through my first two years here at FAWM, Paul, but I am honored to have crossed paths with you in this way nonetheless. The fight you fought is the fight my mother fights now.

  • @dragondreams  Jan 2017

    It was an immense privilege sharing the planet with you, Paul.

    Laters, bud.

  • @pipewrench67  Jan 2017

    You're oddball time signatures will be missed.

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2017

    I miss you, Hoops.

  • @unpronounceable Jan 2017


  • @marvsmooth  Jan 2017

    Rest in peace Hoops :'( xx

  • @cairobraga Jan 2017

    Rest in Power, Hoops!

  • @wille  Jan 2017

    You will always have a home here, dear friend. Thank you for giving us so much.

  • @adforperu  Jan 2017

    RIP Hoops

  • @mikeskliar  Jan 2017

    So sad my friend that you've left us all. the phrase 'rest in peace' just doesn't feel right, -rest in whatever time signature you want, and you'll be missed by so many. (for those who don't know, paul 'hoops' turrell died jan 4, 2017)
