Never a Poster Boy for Sobriety

"Rock n' Roll offers two long-term career paths: death or confession. Sooner or later, you either join the ranks of casualties (Elvis, Hendrix, Vicious) or rehabilitated survivors (Eric Clapton, Steve Tyler, Elton John). Actually, there is a third option. You could be Shane MacGowan." - Taken from "A man of many words and few teeth," an article about Shane that appeared in The Guardian.

I found the quote humorous, but I've also learned that Shane is currently in a bad way. He's touring in Europe, however shows have been canceled at random due to his poor health. He has no current plans to come back to the U.S.
