We are deeply sorry to announce that Andrew Weatherall, the noted DJ and musician passed away in the early hours of this morning, Monday 17th February 2020, at Whipps Cross Hospital, London. The cause of death was a pulmonary embolism. He was being treated in hospital but unfortunately the blood clot reached his heart. His death was swift and peaceful.

His family and friends are profoundly saddened by his death and are taking time to gather their thoughts. Further announcements regarding funeral arrangements will be made in due course by Andrew’s press officer, James Parrish (james@prescriptionpr.co.uk, +44 (0)1223 505 328)

A statement from Andrew Weatherall’s family:

Lizzie, Bob and Ian would like to thank everybody quite literally everywhere for their lovely messages and tributes to Andrew. We know what a special person he was and are overwhelmed at the number of people who knew this too… and to hear their stories and how he influenced them is a real joy at such a raw and dreadful time. Please do what he would have wanted… creating, listening, dancing, but above all pushing boundaries.

There will be a short funeral ceremony for close friends and family on March 12th. Please find a minute or two to remember him and his music during the course of the day. Later this year we plan to hold an event to celebrate Andrew’s life with contributions from many of the people involved in each part of his time with us.

If you wish to mark his memory we would be grateful for any donations made to charities that were important to him:
Amnesty International
Multiple Sclerosis Society
Crisis
Thrombosis UK

If you are thinking of putting on an event in Andrew’s name we would be grateful if you could email contact@rottersgolfclub.com. Thanks

Andrew Weatherall
