    Just added a link with more details - lead singer of Buzzcocks who also had several solo albums. Sorry, should have included Buzzcocks in the title....my bad, my apologies.

    Seriously?

    One of the biggest names in the UK Punk scene.

    Leader of Buzzcocks and the man who brought the Sex Pistols to Manchester.

    RIP. That's no age to go. The Buzzcocks were a quantum above most punk bands, especially lyrically

    Man that sucks. A true legend to any true punk fan, and I was just getting more into his band too.

    Glad I got to see them on their reunion tour in 1989. Rest easy, Pete.

    @Steve Hoffman, if you’ve never heard The Buzzcocks, you definitely should check them out. They were like the Beatles of punk.

    RIP, Pete Shelley

    Very sad news. Buzzcocks are my favourite punk band and that's far too young.

    Ugh! I met Pete after a show back in the 90's. He was a nice man.
