Shelley’s plan before death
PUNK pioneer Pete Shelley was planning to reprise his greatest songs on tour before his sudden death prior to Christmas, he said in his final interview.
The Buzzcocks frontman had hoped to get together with his band for a Christmas meal to plan the future and discuss the shows, he told Record Collector (RC) magazine.
The singer/songwriter died on December 6, aged 63, at his home in Estonia. In the interview, Shelley told RC: “We’ve got our last gig of the year in Holland in a couple of weeks (The Buzzcocks were due to play Arnhem on December 14) so we’ll talk it over then.
Get together and have a cosy Buzzcocks’ Christmas dinner.”
Pete Shelley died last month, aged 63.
