another person I just looked up how they were doing two days ago. RIP
R.I.P. New Year's Eve will never be the same again
Really sad news. Though, given his long history of substance abuse, I'm kinda surprised he lived as long as he did. RIP
damn i was just reading about him the other day as well. rip
rip fucking hard, gonna stumble down the old main drag tonight singing my ass off
RIP to an icon - he wrote so many utterly beautiful tunes.
A Rainy Night In Soho is a top ten song all time in my book.
RIP. Absolute legend.
Oh the words that he spoke
Seemed the wisest of philosophies
There's nothing ever gained
By a wet thing called a tear
When the world is too dark
And I need the light inside of me
I'll walk into a bar
And drink fifteen pints of beer
Absolute legend, I mentioned him in a song last year. RIP
Legend, miracle he lasted this long, but still sad that his run had to end so soon
dude had a pretty rough life, RIP
Pints for everyone, i´m paying.
A very underrated master of their craft
I had to get out of bed for this and down a pint for Mr. MacGowan.
Cheers, Shane. Thank you for the music. May you rest in peace.
Saw Hamilton Lethaysheyxshehf (however you spell his last name) from The Walkmen post about this. Didn't know he covered a Pogues song until I saw someone mention it in the comments.
I bet Colin Meloy is taking this hard. A lot of The Decemberists' early stuff was heavily influenced by The Pogues, particularly Rum, Sodomy, and the Lash.
Um can dadkungfu write every RIP article from now on
And of course rip hard, uncountable great songwriters spurred to put pen to paper by rum sodomy and the lash
yeah agreed lovely tribute
rum, sodomy is one of the greatest albums of all time
and as an irish boi shane is a fuckin hero legend etc etc
One of the voices of my childhood. Could make you feel like weeping, laughing and fighting all in the space of three songs. Been in mourning this last couple of days for this one.
'Rainy Night In Soho is a top ten song all time in my book.' - extremely this.
