Shane MacGowan, 65, on Thursday.

Lead singer and song writer for The Pogues.

https://www.rte.ie/entertainment/2023/1 ... s-aged-65/

Elvis Costello produced The Pogues' second album in 1985 and bet MacGowan that he couldn't write a Christmas song. Costello didn't specify that the song had to be all fluffy and nice though.

Haunted - by Shane MacGowan and Sinéad O'Connor

https://youtu.be/_q7307IWwr4?si=Dt_biBzItgQCCpH6

O'Connor warned Miley Cyrus of the sexual predators in the industry to which Cyrus replied by mocking O'Connor's mental health.
O'Connor committed suicide in July of this year, a year and a half after her son took his own life.
Remember that the next time a DJ plays a Cyrus song and see if you don't switch station.

:leftthumbup: I never knew that so f*** MC as far as I'm concerned.

R.I.P. Shane, you were a poet who made some unforgettable tunes.

Also R.I.P. to visionary manager Terry Venables who was also a founding signatory at the launch of the Anti Nazi League. Top man in more ways than one.

No need to apologise. You're among friends.
Certainly a black mark against Miley Cyrus though. A shitty thing to do.

RIP to El Tel. A solid geezer.

Yeah at it was when Miley Cyrus did a cover of Nothing compares 2 u, basically Cyrus did a cover of her song and then mocked her depression when all SOC was doing was warning her. :dunno:

Terry Venables always seemed to be a very cherry chap, not taking life too seriously and up for a laugh.

Just to let you know, N C 2 U is a Prince song, originally covered by The Family then SOC who smashed it out of the park, helped by that ace video.

No need to apologise! I think a lot know it's a Prince song but not many know The Family version though.

I heard Miley's version if NC2U. I cannot stress enough to you how awful it was. Then I heard her screaming banshee version of Zombie. It was enough to want to rip your ears off.
