The Herald - - ARTS -

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.
