who we lost exactly one year ago today
Peter Jozzeppi Burns (5 August 1959 – 23 October 2016) was an English singer-songwriter and television personality. He founded the pop band Dead or Alive in 1979, in which he was vocalist and songwriter, and who rose to mainstream success with their 1984 single
"You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)".
He rose to further celebrity status in the British media following his appearance on Celebrity Big Brother 4, in which he finished in fifth place. He appeared on further television reality shows, including as a presenter. Burns had a powerful singing voice and was known for his ever-changing, often androgynous appearance, which he freely admitted was greatly modified by cosmetic surgery.
