Philip Chevron

Philip Chevron of The Pogues died yesterday aged 56. He’d been diagnosed with cancer of the head and neck back in 2007 and in 2012 was given the all clear. The tumour came back and took his life yesterday morning. Philip’s best loved song is the truly great Thousands Are Sailing, which I’ve posted before. This song- Haunted- was from the soundtrack of Alex Cox’s Sid And Nancy film, sung by Cait O’Riordan, and deserves to be more widely known. RIP Philip Chevron.
