“Hi, this is a lovely photo. Would it be possible to use it in a book about Buzzcocks, 'Ever Fallen In Love', due for publication next year? A donation would be made to MDMA if it gets used.

“Yes that would be cool there are more photos available too of Steve and press clippings if you’re interested
