An artist who influenced many of the alternative bands you listen to today is being remembered as a music pioneer. Buzzcocks singer Pete Shelley died yesterday at the age of 63, his brother and management confirmed.

Gary John Mcneish wrote on facebook that Shelley had suffered a heart attack.

The band’s official twitter praised Shelley as one of the UK’s most influential and prolific songwriters.
