Saw them a number of times. First time in Galway (1992ish) after they reformed in 1989. Amazing gig. Played all the classics. Even got to spend a couple of hours chatting with him and Diggle over a few beers after.
One of the best punk bands of their time. RIP

I'm a lifelong Buzzcocks fan but only got to see them for the 1st time ever in Galway last year...I had half expected a jaded, middle-aged band experience....total opposite, they were brilliant, and stuck around ages after the gig chatting to fans....

Heaven And The Sea is a cracking album

And the Channel 4 Tour De France intro is my favourite sports music ever

Saw them in Trinity 76 or 77..happened to be working there on a refurb...

Wasn't a huge fan but back then ANY brit band coming over was worth a look...

Ŕ.I.P. Pete....very sad..

As a long time punk fan I was never a huge fan of the buzzcocks but it is certainly a shame to see him go.

RIP.
