Lovely post, Dan. And the story of how he treated you as a "rookie." Surely that helped propel you forward in your career.

I'm eternally grateful that Dave urged me to join him for a Buzzcocks show at the Double Door around 13 years ago. I certainly knew of them at the time, but somehow had not yet gotten my hooks in. That set was a truly memorable one. A joyful, throwback to the good old days when moshing was gleeful for its own sake, and the band absolutely ripped through each son with energy, and no wasted time on filler or inane banter. I've een hooked ever since, and will be ever more.

There's only one Buzzcocks, and only one Pete. Thanks for writing this one.
