“To my brother, who was talented beyond belief, possessed a heart of gold, had an energy that was infectious, a smile that lifted everyone’s spirit, and was a loyal and authentic friend,” Paris, a son of Pierce Brosnan, a US actor, wrote on Instagram.
“You were just getting started and ready to show the world who you were. You were a leader and you had a whole army of loyal soldiers behind you.
“Thank you for being there for me when I needed you most, thank you for all the wild nights, thank you for your music and all the late-night studio sessions with Fray.
“Thank you for blessing us ALL with your presence on this earth. I will carry you in my heart always. Until I see you again brother. Ryan Breaux forever & Zeek Bishop forever.”
