I don't know how, but I missed hearing of this. My condolences to his family.
AFIC was (and is) one of my all time favourite bands. Original! I saw them many times when I lived (10 years) in T.O.
On a couple of occasions I stopped Paul to have a chat. I was fortunate to have him join me at my table, where I ignored my girlfriend and pestered him with music questions. He took it all in stride and was both amusing and enlightening. Man, this is SO hard to believe.
Thank God his, (and the band's) music will live on.

Thanks Paul, you were truly one of the greats!

How saddened I was to receive the notification about Paul's passing. How deeply my heart aches for his family. The loss of a loved one can be so painful, and leave a hole in one's heart. However, knowing how loved he was, should comfort those left behind. We walk beside you, as my memories of a special time with him in my life come clear! Otto, your MGB is driving around heaven, and my memories of that will live on forever. Once a love of mine. RIP and I will forever remember Make Me Do!!!

Yeah.... this is a sad thing to find out just looking for favorite bands on YouTube. I first saw A Foot in Coldwater at The Brass Rail in London in the early seventies, and years later in Niagara Falls. I bought my first Stratocaster and Marshall with effects in 1970, and always enjoyed the sonic atmosphere this band created.
When I see and hear so much musical and professional accomplishment, I know Mr. Naumann's family is losing someone who is not only family, but who is thought of with deep respect, and whose songs are still played, in musicians' lives.
as always, John Watt

I was just surfing the net, and played some AFIC. I just found out the sad news of Paul's passing. The first time I saw Foot was in Parry Sound at the Highschool, in the early seventies. I must have been 13. I admired Paul and his playing. Great music! I sure will miss him.

as a former roadie for bands in the village (yorkville) i met the guy,s in FOOT IN COLDWATER during the good old day,s when toronto rock group,s finally started to get the recognition they deserved In my opinion A FOOT IN COLDWATER were the best in the BIZ bar none.When paul joined Foot it brought the band to the forefront of powerhouse rock band,s to T.O. and eventually Canada His stylistic playing (loud and proud) lyrical savvy took them to a place that they still own to this day.Iwish to express my heartfelt sorrow to paul,s Family for the huge void that is left with his passing.Also to the rest of the guy,s(Hughie,Danny, Bob and Alex) take care because i care.The Werme(worm)
