RIP Buzzcocks Lead Man Pete Shelley

I’m late to the game on this but figured it needed an obit regardless.

The Buzzcocks were a seminal British punk band emerging from the music scene of the 1970’s. They never really achieved mainstream success, but held the mantle of being a strong influence on most pop punk bands from the 80’s onwards.

Pete Shelley, lead singer, died on Thursday at age 63. Suspected heart failure.

Rest in Peace and thanks for the music.
