Biography - A Short Wiki

English pop singer who released the international hit “You Spin Me Round” with the band Dead or Alive.

He was married to Lynne Corlett from 1978 to 2006. He was then briefly married to Michael Simpson from 2007 until 2008.



“I’m not interested in gigs unless I really want to do them. I walked away from music in 1997, and then there was a greatest hits in 2002. Thank God, it didn’t do too well because the record company wouldn’t promote it.” (Pete Burns)


“I never had posters on my walls, and I didn’t have any icons, either. I come from a small village in Wirral, and my family didn’t watch TV. I wasn’t exposed to people with icon status. David Bowie popped up, but I had already shaved my eyebrows off by the time I saw his.” (Pete Burns)


“I’m not a camp, throwaway queen; I’m not in Neverland. I’m not Jennifer Lopez with three people to pluck my eyebrows. I’ve made myself what I want to be – not everybody’s cup of tea. And people wanna have a look at me. I fully accept that. People have always wanted to have a look at me.” (Pete Burns)


“I hope when I’m 80 that I get to Heaven and God doesn’t recognise me.” (Pete Burns)


“It was a lovely feeling, dying. I can remember being in the hospital, all wired up to tubes and thinking, ‘If only you’d take these tubes out, it feels so nice.’ It felt so – it felt like being in a bath of velvet. It was such a nice feeling. Everything felt so soft and floppy, and I wanted to go.” (Pete Burns)
