Pete Shelley, lead singer of Buzzcocks has passed away, age 63

Buzzcocks Leader Pete Shelley Dies 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. "You'll be missed Pete but you'll be remembered for a long long time for your brilliant music".

He wrote his best-known song, "Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've)" in 1978, and it hit No. 12 on the British music charts.

He formed the pop-punk outfit in 1975 with university mate Howard Devoto and appeared a year later as support for the Sex Pistols.

Following news of Shelley's death, many musicians took to Twitter to post tributes to the late singer. Impressed by the Sex Pistols' high-energy performances, they brought the band to Manchester.

They played their first gig at their college and by the following year they were debuting for the Sex Pistols, having driven 200 miles in a borrowed vehicle down to London to convince the Pistols' manager, Malcolm McLaren, to let them onstage. The band's debut EP, Spiral Scratch - which they raised cash to record - is credited with being the first independently-funded punk record.

In 2005, Shelley re-recorded Ever Fallen in Love with an all-star group, including Roger Daltrey, David Gilmour, Peter Hook, Elton John, Robert Plant and several contemporary bands, as a tribute to John Peel.

Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan tweeted: "As a lifelong @Buzzcocks fan.I so appreciate the musical influence Pete".

They eventually reformed in 1989 and have continued to perform together, releasing their most recent album, and ninth overall, "The Way", back in 2014.
