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.....

That’s a bit harsh. They must have had about 4-5 hit singles early days.

The Original Ramones, Joe Strummer and now Pete Shelley.
This is the start of our heroes dropping like flies.

I pray Jet Black is taking it easy in his allotment.

What?

RIP to Pete Shelley, who was absolutely at the forefront of Punk, and penned many many ditties. Buzzcocks as well as solo
