Paul Humphrey — the Canadian artist known best as the frontman for new wave outfit Blue Peter — has died. Yesterday, the band confirmed that Humphrey passed on April 4 "after a long illness."
In a tribute to Humphrey, Blue Peter co-founder Chris Wardman remembered first meeting his late friend and collaborator as a teenager. "I had long hair and a guitar. He had a pony tail and played the flute," Warman wrote. "We invited him to jam with an early incarnation of Blue Peter and our prog-ish aspirations crashed into punk and new wave. He taught us how to play 'Sweet Jane' and our future course was charted."
