Happy birthday Steve Diggle

Happy 67th Birthday to STEVE DIGGLE, guitarist and vocalist for BUZZCOCKS (and FLAG OF CONVENIENCE) . Diggle wrote tons of great songs for Buzzcocks, including "Autonomy", "Fast Cars" (co-written with Howard Devoto and Pete Shelley), "Love Is Lies" (nice acoustic guitar), "Sitting Round At Home", "You Know You Can't Help It", "Mad Mad Judy", "Harmony in My Head", a Top 40 hit in 1979 .... After Pete Shelley's death in December 2018, Diggle continues to perform as frontman for Buzzcocks and drinks in a pub near me.

Thanks Randy Haecker for fact-checking.

RIP Howie Pyro
