Any one else like the pogues?

They're one of my favourite bands and have helped to get me through many hard times as well as good. If I'm feeling extremely emotional be it happy, sad, regretful, struggling with my demons, missing someone ect then they always have a song that really inspires me.

I think that Shane Macgowan is an immensely talented songwriterit's a shame he smashed himself in so much with drink and drugs but I guess he wouldn't be who he is without that side of his personality. There's an interview somewhere in Bono says he is the greatest songwriter and poet of a generation. I find Bono very plastic but I think I agree with him on that one!

They're not really a guitar orientated band but was just wondering who else listens to them. What songs do you like to play if any?

i play boys from the county hell, sick bed of chuchulain, dirty old town and I've found a video of someone playing a lovely rendition of the broad majestic Shannon on acoustic with lots of nicd hybrid picking and chord melody a so my next guitar mission is to learn that I think

I was just listening to them a couple days ago, older things, good stuff. Described as Celtic Punk. I became familiar with the Pogues after seeing Kirsty MacColl performing with them in Fairytale of New York.

I like them but they are the sort of band I buy a "Best Of" CD, always good to have some Pogues at hand for those times you need The Pogues wink.gif
