    Punk legend. Buzzcocks singer/songwriter. Organised the first Sex Pistols show in Manchester, sparking off the careers of Joy Division, The Fall, even Morrissey in the doing so. Paid for the first recording session by The Fall.

    The music world is therefore pretty much unthinkable without him.

    63. Heart attack.

    "Homo Superior, In my interior" - I mean, surely people weren't THAT naive...

    Funny how this has fallen off the news quicker than Mark E Smith....I would have thought him a bigger deal what with Buzzcocks having pretty much invented the "indie label" as we once knew it and having had actual hits.

    Very much :( all round. I’d quite forgotten about ‘Qu’est-ce-que c’est que ça ?’ and will have to buy that album instantly so Discogs here I come

    I thought he looked much better with age actually, but then again I suppose I would :side-eye:

    I'm slightly :shock: to discover that he moved to Esthonia with his SECOND WIFE!

    Do you prefer a little meat on the bones, Zu? I know one or two people who have quite the thing for what one of them described as "a pleasing chunk".

    That six-pack stomach lark has never done anything for me. Might as well buy a xylophone, and at least you'd get a lovely tune :disco:
