Global RIP thread

OK we have differing definitions of “Die Young “ then, to me if someone under the age of 75 dies of heart disease, cancer, chronic lower respiratory diseases, stroke etc then it is classed as “Dying Young” where as accident and suicide are tragic deaths, or a waste of a life etc

Semantics I know, but to me “Dying Young” means dying early of a disease associated with later on in life, my way of thinking and nothing will change that.

Shane MacGowan, music and excess’

The Pogues were once described as a tight, professional bunch of musicians fronted by a total shambles.

But the shambles, their charismatic singer Shane MacGowan, was heralded as one of the finest song writers and lyricists of his time.

The Pogues' great achievement was to successfully bring together traditional foot-stomping Irish music with the crashing chords of North London punk.

Like fellow Celts Brendan Behan and Dylan Thomas, MacGowan's source of inspiration was invariably alcoholic and he became as famous for his legendary excesses as he was for his music.

Yep heard that earlier.....:rip:

Still one of my favorites

It was Christmas Eve babe
In the drunk tank
An old man said to me, won't see another one
And then he sang a song
The Rare Old Mountain Dew
I turned my face away
And dreamed about you

Unfortunately the arsehold brigade what it banned for “offensive lyrics”

You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it's our last

Guaranteed to be Christmas number one in the UK this year.
