QuoteShane MacGowan, the lead singer and songwriter of trailblazing Celtic punk band the Pogues and one of the all-time great bandleaders, has died aged 65 following a long period of ill health. A family statement said he died at 3.30am on 30 November, and was described as "our most beautiful, darling and dearly beloved".
His wife Victoria Mary Clarke wrote in a statement on social media: "Shane will always be the light that I hold before me and the measure of my dreams and the love of my life ... I am blessed beyond words to have met him and to have loved him and to have been so endlessly and unconditionally loved by him."
