Pete Shelley RIP

Tonight I type this with tears in my eyes and sadness in my heart on the news that the great Peter Campbell McNeish more commonly known as Pete Shelley, lead singer and guitarist of our beloved Buzzcocks has sadly died earlier today of a heart attack in Estonia where he now lives. My heartfelt condolences go out to Peter's Family his current band mates Steve Diggle, Danny Farrant, Chris Remington and all of his former bandmates, friends and fans worldwide. I last spoke to Pete at an event in Manchester earlier this year, a wonderful man who will be sorely missed by us all. Peter Campbell McNeish RIP 1955-2018

Buzzcocks at The Electric Circus, 28 November 1976. Not sure of the source for this pic and it might well be one of John Maher's from his scrapbooks that he's been posting via his @flyingmonkphoto Twitter account.  Incidentally if you love Buzzcocks (and if you don't why are you here?) then I would urge you to follow John's Tweets, they are a fantastic historical reference for Buzzcocks and related information.
