Was in a foul mood this morning until one of my pupils commented “ you alright sir? You seem sad today.” I realised I was grieving ( I’ve met Pete Shelley a few times and he was one of the nicest people, a real hero of my youth) So this afternoon I educated the next generation of music fans on the genius that was Pete Shelley and Buzzcocks.
Had a very similar experience myself when Prince died (obviously a very different character to Pete Shelley). Life long fan and all that, I had been to dozens of gigs, after shows etc. These people are a big part of our lives, hits you for six when they are no longer around.
Respect for passing on VERY important knowledge, Sir.
