Paul was injured in a tragic accident when he was still a teenager and has been in a wheelchair for most of his adult life, in addition to other health-related issues. But he has been and remains an inspiring figure in the House Music community.
"Some of you may or may not know that I have known Paul for many years now. He has been an inspiration and a mentor to not only me but countless of other producers and djs out there. He has accomplished so much where others have only dreamed. Paul has played some of the best most legendary sets I have ever heard, hands down... I am honored to have him be a part of our family here at Agency Sounds. We miss him and we're praying for his health and a speedy recovery. I ask that you please keep him in your thoughts and do the same." - Bamboo
