Links To Peel

The Buzzcocks did five sessions for Peel's show and their last Peel session in 2003 was the first for 24 years. Ken Garner's list on p. 282 of The Peel Sessions of 'Top Ten Longest Intervals Between Sessions' omits this, which would make it the third longest gap after Faust. In 2005, Shelley re-recorded the Buzzcocks "Ever Fallen in Love" with an all-star group, including Roger Daltrey, David Gilmour, Peter Hook, Elton John, Robert Plant and several contemporary bands, as a tribute to John Peel. Proceeds went to Amnesty International, Peel's favourite charity.
