Pete Shelley R.I.P.
I was gutted to hear about the death of Pete Shelley at the far too young age of 63.
One of the finest songwriters and singers of his generation.
He must have been around 23 when he wrote and sang Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've) in 1978
In the succeeding 40 years it has never been out of my top 10 songs of all time. One that would accompany me to a desert island.
I was playing Going Steady in the car on the way to work this morning and ended up playing it twice as once was not enough.
Rest easy Pete
