The writer spent over 20 hours on the phone with the Buzzcock's singer while he was at his Estonian home before he died in 2018.

"Being able to speak to Pete about all those songs was a childhood dream come true," Miss Shelley said.

She was able to meet the Buzzcocks in 1999, which she described as "thrilling" as she had been a fan since the age of 12.
