MacGowan Loses Two More Teeth

2006-10-29 by Dave de Sylvia STAFF | 7 Comments
Dentally-challenged singer Shane MacGowan lost two teeth this week in a freak accident by a roadside in Limerick, Ireland, reports Irish newspaper The Sunday World.

MacGowan, who really can't afford to discard his already limited supply of teeth so casually, was returning from a late-night music and drinking session when he got out of the car he was travelling in to get sick. Bizarrely, he was rudely interrupted by a wall, which he promptly fell over, cracking his face on some loose bricks.

MacGowan has been without his two front teeth for many years, and he's lost many more in the intervening years. Ex-Girlfriend Victoria Clarke claimed in 1996 that the singer had damaged his teeth by eating a copy of the Beach Boys' Greatest Hits, Vol. 3 LP whilst under the influence of LSD.

Commented pal Dan Gleeson, "We had decided to go to Limerick for a session and were passing through Kilcurry, outside Nenagh, on our way home about 11pm.

"We stopped because Shane wanted to get out and be sick and the next thing I saw were his two feet disappearing over the wall. They are widening the road there and Shane just disappeared over the wall.

"It was dark at the time of course and by the time he got back on his feet he realised he had lost two teeth. He was a bit shaken up and a bit sore. He hasn't exactly got too many teeth to lose."


It was recently reported that MacGowan may use the money earned from the Pogues' reunion tour in 2004 to purchase a new set of teeth.

He cant have many teeth left, and the ones he has are pretty much black and rotten.
