About Shane MacGowan
One of the most legendary artists from Ireland, Shane MacGowan has combined traditional Irish music with punk stylings in his career as a singer-songwriter.
His first real successes came with The Pogues, whose standout singles include the all-time classics Fairytale of New York, Dirty Old Town and If I Should Fall from Grace with God.
As famous perhaps at the height of his career for his excesses with drink and drugs as for his singing talents, MacGowan went on to perform with The Popes, after leaving the Pogues, with whom he continues to record and perform today.
But in 2004, he also toured with the Pogues again in Europe.
