RIP: DJ Derek

From The Guardian:

Police have confirmed the death of Derek Serpell-Morris, the veteran DJ from Bristol who went missing in July 2015.

A nationwide search to find the 73-year-old was halted earlier this month when a member of the public found human remains near Cribbs Causeway shopping centre in Patchway, Bristol. DNA tests have confirmed his death. […]

The DJ, who was formerly an accountant for Cadbury and had lived in St Paul’s, Bristol, since 1978, was a staple at local bars and clubs, and at Glastonbury festival. As well as his status as Britain’s oldest DJ, he was known for playing a combination of 1960s rocksteady, reggae, ska, dancehall and soul music. […]
