Pete Shelley of The Buzzcocks died of a heart attack this morning, aged 63.

Great band, with his very distinct vocals.  I was too young for their heyday but saw them live in the early 90s, surrounded by a load of 40 something blokes.

I'm now one of those 40-something blokes at gigs.

One of the bands of my youth, RIP



sorry about the first two seconds, but don't let that spoil a great tune.

Interesting choice, quite unbuzzocky really but a great song fronted by Steve Diggle during a Pete Shelley hiatus from the band. I met and had a chat with Steve Diggle in a fish and chip shop between Finchley Road and Swiss Cottage in 1980. Not a lot of people know that.

One of my all time fave bands - clever lyrics, more musicality than people generally remember punk as being but this was pre the Oi and more metal influenced punk bands of the early 80s (many of which I loved too)

When they said Pete Shelley died, age 63, I nearly cried for a few reasons

I am pretty shit at recognising people obviously, always was. 

I didn't realise until tonight that Pete Shelley did one of the theme tunes to the Tour De France back in the day.

I almost put up Homosapien, loved that back in the day, never realised it had been banned at the time.  Probably not a buzzcocks song either, but very much a Pete Shelley one? 

Pretty depressing all the bands dying off, they were all so young at the time, feeling my age tonight.

Did you have 6 music on tonight? Marc Riley was doing his parralel universe thing where he plays tunes from a certain year.  It was very much featuring the Buzzcocks and Pete Shelley, and then it finished and 6 music announced his death.  But the Parallel Universe section started before the death announcement.  It was a hell of a  coincidence if they didn't know.

Yep, definitely made me feel my age and also prompts a certain 'make the most of things' feeling. I need to do some more positive, good things with my life, gonna get started tomorrow.

I feel a bit left out this morning. I'm from the same era (roughly) as Sheriff & Doobs & am younger than booder or nirvana, but I never even knew Buzzcocks were a band, I only know the phrase "Buzzcocks" from the TV Show.

I went googling this morning & discovered how the TV show (allegedly) got it's name;


The title plays on the names of punk rock band Sex Pistols' Never Mind the Bollocks album, and the punk band Buzzcocks
