So this post marks the sad passing of Shane MacGowan on the 30th of November 2023. Sadly Shane’s general lifestyle was not that conducive to longevity. Probably his most famous hit was Fairytale of New York which was a duet between him and the late Kirsty MacColl who passed away tragically young in a bizarre boating accident. Shane also covered the Australian classic written by Eric Bogle The Band played Waltzing Matilda a song about Australian Anzac day which commemorates Australian’s who lost their lives in active combat.
