Buzzcocks lead singer Pete Shelley has died at 63 of a suspected heart attack.

The punk band are best known for their hit, Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn't've).

Their management told the BBC that Shelley died on Thursday in Estonia where he was living.

BBC music correspondent Lizo Mzimba said Buzzcocks, who formed in Bolton in the 1970s, were regarded as more polished, but musically no less influential, than the Sex Pistols.

The band have tweeted saying Shelley was "one of the UK's most influential and prolific songwriters and co-founder of the seminal original punk band Buzzcocks".

1. Saw him many, many times over the years.

Both in the Buzzcocks and as a solo artist.

Always put on a great show. He will be missed.

2. Oh, no. I've got a great dance mix tape, and "Homo Sapien"

is barely into it. I love that tune. The tape is straight outta the '80s. You can't find a bad song on it.
