"I just thought about him the other day and I find out now that Andy Anderson died earlier today, his involvement with the Alt Rock movement was so important and needs to be talked about way more." [tweet by SatanLaurenttt]
Jonny Greene : "I met Andy over 45 years ago and seem to remember him getting his first drum kit - or at least he was SO excited at getting a kit it seemed like his first, I can't remember - but he was an enthusiastic, friendly guy. Andy lived in the same street of squats as Keith the Bass in Twickenham. He shared a house with a future girl-friend of mine who he kept a benign weather eye on. Harry Williamson says it was he introduced Andy to Steve Hillage, although Steve remembers it differently. I don't know I wasn't there. It was all part of the Nik Turner Sphynx or pre-Sphynx collective - Steffe Sharpstrings, also part of that scene, was very sad when I told him of Andy's passing. Even though I had not seen Andy for decades, he just was one of those types of people you remember fondly. I always imagined we'd meet again because of the Hillage connection. But not to be - Go well Andy."
Nik Turner : "Here is the extremely sad announcement of the Tragic death of the Fab Drummer, Mr Andy Anderson, he always loves a Laugh, I'm very sad about him dying, but am equally sure he's very happy now, we love you Andy, from Nik and all your friends, xxxxxxx"
