    Just seen this news. :cry: R.I.P.
    The Buzzcocks were a large part of my yoof. Another Music in a Different Kitchen is one of the best albums of all time.

    To us of a certain age this music was ( this gonna sound so shit ) life changing . This was our music , our rock n roll, our scene. Buzzcocks were up there with the greatest bands of our time and I'll be ever grateful to Pete Shelley and his ilk for giving this to us .

    Saw them at Newcastle Uni just after Joe Strummer died and they dedicated Autonomy to him as his favourite song then did a version of White Riot :(:(

    Saw them live a few times, supported by Joy Division on one occasion & others. I had to edit my original post as I typed "Pete Shelley introduced me to Penetration" which just reads wrong:eek:
    Penetrations version of Nostalgia would be my Desert Island Disc, a perfectly written pop song performed brilliantly

    Gutted by this. Another great gone. RIP Pete.

    Saw them at Reading 1990. Singles Going Steady has to be one of the finest collections ever put together.

    RIP Pete you were fucking brilliant man

    The Buzzcocks were right at the vanguard of new music back in the day, and they took punk in a different direction to the other bands on the scene. Unsung heroes in my eyes, and they were hugely influential if the massive amount of 'punk pop' bands that have followed, is anything to go by.

    Was lucky enough to see them a couple of times back in the day and still play the first 3 albums on vinyl. My kids both like the homosapien album. Will have a buzzcocks day working at home tomorrow
