Guest Book Highlights

April 04, 2019 "I was 24 years old in 1978. Moved to Denver Colorado from New York City. I can't tell you how much time I spent driving around Colorado listening to the Buzzcocks. Countless hours. Ever since 1977-78 Buzzcocks have remained second favorite of all time only tied with the Doors for the number two spot and number one was always the Beatles. That hasn't changed for decades. And I still regularly listen to All of Pete Shelley solo albums . As far as I'm concerned not an average song on any one of them. All worthwhile and enjoyable. Over the past 15-20 years I would tell friends and family that were into music that the Buzzcocks are the only band I know from the sixties and seventies that were still making albums that could actually write songs that I felt were as good or better than their original stuff that made them famous. I love music but I can't think of any other bands from decades ago that is still around that I could say that about. I love the band and I love Pete Shelley and I will miss him. My heart goes out to his family and friends but we are going to have such wonderful memories of him. All happy ones of course." - Steven Singer (Los Angeles, CA)
