RIP Paul Humphrey of Blue Peter


RIP Paul Humphrey of Blue Peter

Paul Humphrey, frontman of Canadian ‘80s band Blue Peter, died Sunday after a long battle with a rare neurological disorder. He was 61.

“What a ride we had,” wrote bandmate Chris Wardman. “Recording, radio airplay, sharing stages with our favourite bands, videos, success beyond our wildest dreams and then, decades later, joyous reunion shows.

"Paul always pushed me to play better, write stronger songs, embrace fashion and to put on a show. He was a unique talent, a great dancer and an amazing front person for Blue Peter’s musical aspirations."

Wardman added: “I will miss his voice, his humour, his warmth, his friendship and his fearlessness.”

Singer Steven Page and the band Lowest of the Low are among those paying tribute to Humphrey on social media. Singer Emm Gryner tweeted: “He was a legend and the loveliest man … His voice and his beautiful spirit will always live on.”

Blue Peter released two EPs and two albums between 1979 and 1983 and had success with tracks like “Radio Silence” and “Don’t Walk Past.” The group opened shows for acts like the Police, Simple Minds and the Boomtown Rats.

"All Your Time" is one of my favorite tracks of 1983.

Blue Peter were an under-appreciated band. I saw the video for "Don't Walk Past" once on MTV and it stuck with me, though I never saw any records in Florida. Many years later, I bought the CD that was finally released of "The Falling" and enjoyed it, also enjoying the unreleased follow up album included on that CD. I needed to get more Blue Peter CDs but they are still rare birds in America. A shame that he died so young. I thought he had a lot vocally in common with Marian Gold of Alphaville.

A sad day for the New Wave community indeed! I had the pleasure of meeting Paul on a few occasions at CFNY reunion events and in concert. He was the most humble down to earth person you could ever imagine! "Don't Walk Past", "All Your Time", "Unchained Heart" and so many more will always be a part of my childhood!

At least the music still lingers. Everything Blue Peter did is now available on Deezer, Spotify or Itunes.
