Buzzcocks Frontman Pete Shelley Dead at 63

Pete Shelley of the Buzzcocks Dead at 63

The band's management confirmed Shelley's passing, BBC reports, telling the broadcaster he died of a heart attack on Thursday (December 6) in Estonia. "Pete Shelley gone. The Buzzcocks were and are a favorite of mine, and I was fortunate to be able to hang with Pete a few times and tell him so".

Shelley became the primary songwriter for the Buzzcocks in 1977, following the departure of original lead singer Howard Devoto.

The Buzzcocks were a vastly influential pillar of Manchester's influential punk scene in the '70s, along with contemporaries like Magazine and the Sex Pistols.

The full-lengths spawned a series of songs that made the U.K. Singles Chart, including "Orgasm Addict", "What Do I Get?" and "Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've)".

Shelley, whose real name was Peter Campbell McNeish, was inspired to form Buzzcocks after seeing the Sex Pistols perform, according to Variety.

The band released their debut Spiral Scratch EP the next year and Devoto left the group shortly afterwards.
