Buzzcocks singer Pete Shelley dies at 63

BBC music correspondent Lizo Mzimba said Buzzcocks, who formed in Bolton in the 1970s, were regarded as more polished, but musically no less influential, than the Sex Pistols.

The band have tweeted saying Shelley was "one of the UK's most influential and prolific songwriters and co-founder of the seminal original punk band Buzzcocks".

Co-founder of seminal punk band suffered suspected heart attack

Speaking in 2006 about his views on music, Shelley told the Guardian: "I'm not interested in being able to play. A musician is like another brand of entertainer.

"There are plenty of musicians that I enjoy watching that are entertainers. But I wouldn't want to be that, because the thing with an entertainer is that there is always that dishonesty, which is what punk tried to get rid of.

Punk pioneer

The Buzzcocks stood alongside the Clash and the Sex Pistols as pioneers of British punk. Shelley and Howard Devoto formed the band in 1975, and after Devoto left, Shelley took over as the lead singer and songwriter, his melodic sneer pairing perfectly with the Buzzcocks' breakneck guitar attack.

Ex-Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock remembers Shelley as "one of the very few originals of punk".

Mit dem Buzzcocks-Gründer ist ein grosser Songwriter gestorben

Gings noch pubertärer? Nein, gings natürlich nicht, und das war auch gut so. Denn die Buzzcocks aus Manchester erschufen so einige der unkaputtbarsten Songs der so kurzen wie stürmischen Punkära.

Er brachte Sex und Liebe in den Punk

Er spielte das berühmteste Solo des Punk, sang die rasantesten Teenagerhymnen und beeinflusste alle, die laute Gitarren und Pop-Melodien vereinen wollten: Pete Shelley, der Sänger der Buzzcocks, ist tot.
