Punk pioneer Shelley dies at 63
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.”’
