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 taught us how to play 'Sweet Jane' and our future course was charted."
