shane mcgowan on frank skinner...

Recommended Posts

anyone see it ?

jeez...poor guy, I got the feeling people are laughing at him, rather than "with him".

because of his fucked teeth now, he's got a crazy cartoon "sucking" laugh...

it's a shame what drink can do to people.

He's got the money, you'd think he'd just get them fixed. I mean, just how scared of a dentist can you be?

He could just get knocked out and have them all fixed in a oner.

Did you see the episode of the Osbournes where Ozzy goes to have his teeth polished and he's like 'more gas' 'OK Mr Osbourne' 'More gas' 'Erm OK Mr Osbourne' ' More Fucking Gas' 'It doesn't go any higher Mr Osbourne'

I thought it was wrong to get him on the show. He's in a right state though, poor guy. You could tell he wasn't right with all the nervous fidgeting, like tapping his glass right the way through and all that stuff. Shame.

Met MacGowan in Dublin in July, and he is exactly the same in real life!

He's still all there though - he "signed" my copy of The Pogues' Peace and Love by drawing a speech bubble around the boxer on the front saying "I hate the fuckin..." leading up to the big "Pogues" on the cover, which was class. On the other side he wrote "Shane's cover, welcome to my cover", which was pretty good too.

It was heart-wrenchingly pathetic.

Rob I doubt he has money, staying drunk and chain smoking 24hrs a day 7 days a week must cost a quid or two.

He's completely fucked, but he's still a pretty clever guy underneath it all. Drink has just utterly destroyed him. It was pretty sad seeing the clip form the eighties of the Pogues and comparing to how he is now. I thought it was sad when he said he was still in love too. And his laugh freaked me out.

Nevertheless, he was truly brilliant at the Lemon Tree at the beginning of the year, and i'm sure the Pogues will be brilliant in Glasgow in, hey, exactly two weeks! Back o the net! Never realised it was so close!

Anyone else catching either of the gigs? I cannae wait!
