Shelley co-founded Buzzcocks in 1976 with singer-songwriter Howard Devoto, who later left the band to leave Shelley as its vocalist and songwriter.

The Leigh-born musician, who fronted the Bolton-formed band, reportedly died aged 63, following a heart attack at his home in Estonia on Thursday. Buzzcocks management informed BBC of Shelley's death earlier today (Dec. 6). Fans of the band look at Buzzcocks as easily one of the most influential acts in the Manchester music scene, as well as in the movement for independent record labels, in general. Thank you Pete and R.I.P. He would be out in the audience, too, not hanging out back stage (or) from the side.

But what's less known is that the inspiration for Buzzcocks biggest single came to him as its lead singer sat watching a 1950s musical in an Edinburgh Guest house on a winter's night.

Midge Ure said: "Sad to hear of death of one of the punk/new wave pioneers".

The apps would apparently detect new app installations on a user's device and claim the credit for driving said installations. The outlet says Google's internal investigation found that the apps contained code used for ad fraud techniques.

But where the Sex Pistols had an angry, political edge, Buzzcocks were cheekier, with polished three-minute songs about teenage romance like 16 Again that featured strong melodies and harmonies. His two-note solo on "Boredom" was like the Duchamp toilet, nothing was the same afterwards.

Writing on Instagram, Duran Duran remembered Shelley as "a fearless iconoclast" and "a true legend" whose death had left them "very very sad".

Peter Hook, of Joy Division and New Order fame, said Shelley was "a true gent" who "helped us so much. out of a sheer love for all things punk". He was the first person to make punk rock for everyone. He did so with the most immaculate melodies ever hammered through an overdriven amp.
