48. Shane MacGowan

I suppose Shane now being in a wheelchair all the time reduces the risk of him falling over and sustaining a fatal head injury, which had always been on the cards.

Yeah, but now a blood clot is on the cards.

Some alki's defy the odds no matter how much they drink. I remember a bloke who lived next door to my aunt who was on the piss virtually every day of his life until his demise in his early 80s. Hope for me yet then:D

Guest on the RTÉ Late Late Show this evening, likely in one of the pre-record bits as it was a bit of a tied together mess

 

Looked bloated and could barely attempt to sing.

Aye, remember the man well - bad call to cremate him as I recall

So, if streaming doesn't pay the way record sales used to - you can always diversify

If they are really willing to bring back Shane for a third time, then I think he’s starting to head to bedblocker status...

I’ll give 2:1 odds he lives.  Put the monetary amount and it’s a bet.  That’s how stupid this name is.  Prove me wrong or pay me.

He's reminding me of the end days of Mark E. Smith, wheelchair-bound with rapid deterioration. Think this will be his year - there's only so long you can abuse your body to the extent he has, a relentless pounding day after day.

Hospitalized over Christmas according to our pals at the Sun. Discharged and apparently 'fine' now. 

 

Although he obviously has been looking like shit for decades, the physical deterioration in the past couple of years has been quite significant. Maybe not that bad a pick after all.

Isnt he just the younger, wheelchair bound version of keith richards? Might as well have the real thing on the list instead? Or a more vegetative guy like schumacher? Did I miss something?

couple more years in him, I'd say - but he won't make 70

Just guessing that he might be hanging on till a biography is published/released. It was due out last year but due to a small, little worldwide problem it's been delayed to hopefully being released October this year.

Hell no, anyone who saw the bio/documentary recently got let into enough to see Shane's a total mess. Keith - once he cleaned up from the smack addiction of the 70s - has used the fags and Jack Daniels as something of a prop. The recent(ish) doc made clear Shane is a serious alcoholic and his drug use has done for his mental health a few times to the point he's been sectioned. The main reason he's wheelchair bound is that his balance is fucked and for much of the filming Shane was shipping alcohol to the point his diction is shot too. So the speech centre of his brain has likely shipped damage that won't repair. With our without the scenes where Johnny Depp is fawning over Shane and pouring his drink (because Shane's co-ordination is so fucked at that point he can't pour his own) the man's life choices and accumulated damage are blatantly obvious.

 

The real fucked up deal, frankly - and should be DDP Drop Forty if he makes the start line next year.
