Lots of great memories of listening to the Buzzcocks back in the day. Even though I hung out with a bunch of mods (and rude boys, skinheads etc) they were definitely a band that broke through to that scene in my crowd at least. RIP indeed, thanks for posting.

PS _ I shouldn't need to say this but only a small group of skinheads were racist during the revival movement. Just getting that out of the way in case someone takes offence ...

Oh, bummer.

Definitely one of those voices that carved out my best ill spent years.

My favorite band when I was a teenager. Great live - imagine being in a packed hall with 2000 kids pogoing to the beat. I was riding a Yamaha YB100 to shows back then. Saw them twice with Joy Division as a supporting band.

63 is too young.

I'm gutted. My 19 year old grew up with them on 24x7 and was really depressed. I think that says I raised him right.
