The Press and Journal (Moray) - - NEWS -

Trib­utes have been paid to Buz­zcocks front­man Pete Shel­ley, who has died aged 63.

Shel­ley re­port­edly died fol­low­ing a heart at­tack at his home in Es­to­nia.

Buz­zcocks were best known for their 1978 hit Ever Fallen In Love (With Some­one You Shouldn’t’ve).

Tim Burgess, lead singer of The Char­la­tans, said Shel­ley would be re­mem­bered “for a long, long time” for his “bril­liant” work.

Tracey Thorn, for­merly of Ev­ery­thing But The Girl, quoted from Buz­zcocks track 16 Again.

She tweeted: “Oh God but I loved Buz­zcocks. And Pete Shel­ley was an amaz­ing song­writer. ‘But af­ter all life’s only death’s rec­om­pense.”’
