The Stone Roses singer, Ian Brownhas paid tribute to him by writing a post on Twitter in which he says that “Few loved music as much as Pete. He’s been bathing in music since Sex Pistols’ “Anarchy in the UK” came out and I can attest that Pete It was out of scale, it was nice, an “old skool” of those that no longer exist!”
