Pete Shelley (17 April 1955 – 6 December 2018), born Peter Campbell McNeish, was an English singer, songwriter and guitarist. He formed Buzzcocks with Howard Devoto in 1975, and was the lead singer and guitarist from 1977 when Devoto left, releasing “Ever Fallen in Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t’ve)” in 1978.
