Friday Music Pick - Buzzcocks

It is with great sadness that we woke this morning to the news that Buzzcocks frontman and co-founder, Pete Shelley, has passed away at the age of 63 from a suspected heart attack. Taken too young.

A most influential band, Buzzcocks formed in the 1970s in Bolton and paved the way for many bands, including Joy Division and New Order, who took inspiration from this original northern punk group.

As a special tribute, join us in remembering Pete Shelley, Buzzcocks and their punk classic ‘Ever Fallen In Love’. As you can imagine, there has been an influx of tributes, from the music world and beyond, pouring in for the musical legend.
