Shane magowan rip

More like a hooley than a Catholic Mass. Fairytale of NY is a great song but completely inappropriate for a religious service. Still, RIP Shane.
Ask God to punish them tonight in your prayers.

And if that doesn't work.

Hansard in the middle of it all annoyed me. Maybe it was just one tune but he manages to get into the middle of all those big national events. Would he even sell out The Venue Bar and Lounge?
 
Everything he said is correct.

Erra its easy to take a teeny snippet of a longer piece to make it sound bad.

Fuckwits who wouldn't have a fraction of his appreciation for music having a cut off Fanning again.

F*ck off.

MacGowan wasn't even in the grave and he was taking him down a peg ffs regardless of the context. Fanning is a professional who should know better from years of media work.

It's the day of the man's funeral so thousands of people who loved him are either grieving or celebrating his life or both. You don't go out and do Saturday afternoon football punditry and 'call it like it is' on the day someones being buried.

It's tone deaf and culturally deaf. He could have easily skirted around the question and been more sensitive and respectful. Leave it til next week to put Shane's career in context. Even mentioning Nick Cave as superior and the fella singing at the funeral lol.

I wasn't a huge MacGowan fan tbh but Fannings a fucking talentless clown.

Load of shite m8.

He gave a glowing tribute to MacGowan on Ireland AM during the week.

Some guy that puts up old vids on YouTube puts up 20 secs of a clearly longer piece and everyone wades into Fanning.

MacGowan was kicked out of the Pogues becauseof his drinking and heroin use. The guy has been completely fucked with nearly two decades. When did he last put out any music?

The usual load of shit beatifying a fella who was in a decent band close to 40 years ago.

Dave was spot on about Christy Dignam too.
