Andrew McLan Fraser passed away on Monday at his home in California. He leaves behind his daughters Hannah and Jasmine Fraser, and their mother Ri, his sister Gail, brothers Gavin and Alex, and many friends and associates in the industry.

A survivor of both cancer and AIDS, Andy was a strong social activist and defender of individual human rights.’

His daughter Jasmine posted on Facebook:

‘I am completely heartbroken. My beloved father has died. I just don’t know how anything will feel alright again… it’s such a huge loss for me and my family, and the many people that loved him and were inspired by his music. I’m sure he would have some dry wise-crack to cheer me up, I wish he was here to tell me what it is. His spirit is flying free, riding the bass-lines of the universe… I will love him forever.’
