What a great band he fronted.

RIP and all that but let's not too carried away here - they were basically one hit wonders.

Jedward had more success - whether they made a greater contribution is obviously purely subjective.

Regrettably it’s true and for many of us, our first tentative steps into punk were through Buzzcocks: curiously most of their singles I bought from Easy Listening in Acocks Green village.

RIP Pete. Singles Going Steady in particular is a classic. Then there’s Spiral Scratch, Kitchen.....
