Tim Cole, one half of duo The Correspondents, has died ‘unexpectedly’ aged 35.

Cole, known as DJ Chucks, died on Sunday, his bandmate of 13 years Ian Bruce confirmed in a Facebook post.

Ian, who goes by the stage name Mr Bruce, told fans he is ‘devastated’.

He wrote: ‘I’m devastated to inform you all that my band mate Tim Cole (aka Chucks) unexpectedly died last Sunday. We are all in total shock.

‘He was a brilliant, complicated man who never fully appreciated the extent of his own talent. He’s the reason I bounced around like a lunatic for 13 years. And in a funny kind of way he’s the reason the band lasted so long as he always chose integrity over hype, he was a facts not fads kinda guy.’

Bruce confessed that touring together ‘wasn’t always easy’ but he will miss not having him by his side.

The musician continued: ‘I will miss his wit and cynicism. Him trying to explain neuroscience to me. I guess I will even miss having to sit through hours of cricket commentary on long car journeys to festivals.

Today we find ourselves in scorching Vicenza.

‘It wasn’t always easy. Life on the road with endless gigs, airports, hotels and soundchecks took its toll. But the sense of achievement and satisfaction after each show was something palpable that we would always share and enjoy.

‘He was cynical about many things but never our fans or the hundreds of people involved in getting us onto stages across the world.

‘Tim, I love you like a brother. You will be missed.’

The pair, who have been performing together for over 10 years, had recently released a video for Only One Not Smiling.
