Shane is my cuz, so I was delighted to be asked to play as part of the band at his big 60th Celebration in Dublin recently. We've met a few times down thru the years but it wasn't until relatively recently that I made the family connection. I've always admired Shane and the Pogues poetic honesty and punk ethic. The night in Dublin was a blistering set of Shane's classics sung by a galaxy of singers and supported by an army of great musicians. It was a bittersweet night. Sweet reunions and bitter realisation that it would never be like this again and maybe the last time this fabulous cohort would assemble.. Thanks Shane for letting me be a Pogue for a night..and Happy Birthday CUZ.. come on ya bastards...
