RIP Pete Shelley

Real sad news. Grew up with Buzzcocks, seen them many times, great pop tunes great band. They were very much a part of the soundtrack to my teenage years.
RIP Pete

  • Damn. Saw him a number of times, but never more fun than live and in person on Top of the Pops. 63. That's bloody tragic.

  • Too young, RIP

  • Oh man.

    RIP Pete.

    :'(

  • I was only recently exposed to them, originally I wasn’t in the UK at the time when they were around, so I completely missed out on knowing about them even afterwards. He was only about five or six years older than myself, which of course is acceptably young.

    He was living in Estonia these days?

  • Wow, that really hit me. RIP...

  • Wow! so young! Are there any details as to what happened? Cancer? Heart Attack? Drugs? Suicide? I'm just curious....

    Heart attack apparently.

  • Sad. The Buzzcocks were terrific.

  • “it goes on and on and on and on, HOW I WISH IT WOULD STOP!”
    which apparently and very sadly his heart did..
    so soon after Mark E!
    reaper should have taken them gallagher gits instead...

  • Too young. Anyone know the circumstances how he died?

  • RIP. The Buzzcocks were a soundtracks to my youth. I Believe and Hollow Inside were 2 favorites.

  • That's a goddamn shame.
    Rest In Peace.

  • Harmony in My Head rocks!

  • A massive influence on me.
    Wrote some of THE greatest songs.
    RIP Pete x

  • :'( I guess The Buzzcocks will be this evenings soundtrack :'(
