Farewell, and may the music live on

Shane MacGowan passed away today. He was a true legend, and it’s sad to know he’s gone. Any Shane MacGowan fans? Fans of The Pogues?

Right now, I’m raising one to Shane. You should do the same.

Fuckin’ a, dude.

If you ever find yourself in a dive bar that needs livening up I’ve seen this tune do the trick quite nicely.

May he go where the streams flow forever.

No Fairytale of New York? Raising a dram of Jameson to him, he was one in a million and I’m glad he married his girlfriend some years ago. Somehow he managed to find his place in life during his last years, a pretty good way to leave the world.
