Keith

Absolutely, as I'm 63 next March. Jeez, stories like this and those that spanned the end of 2016 and early 2017, makes you reflect on your own mortality and longevity.

Buzzcocks were a great punk band against some of their more raw contemporaries.

RIP Pete Shelley. I was a little too young to be into punk when it happened, but the music certainly grabbed me in later years.
Guitars: Chevy LP-C (1991), Squier VM Jaguar (2015)
Amp: Fender Mustang I v2 (2015)

RIP.
Buzzcocks provided a much-needed shot of northern humour and self-deprecation to the intensity of angry punk (both of which I loved).

Ever Fallen In Love was a favourite of mine to play in a covers band.

Great band, beautiful melodies. Here they are on a balcony above Dame Street in 2009:
