    Thanks for sharing this.  I actual popped in here to see if anyone posted about Geordie Walker from Killing Joke passing.  Two greats that I always turn up.

    Agreed... I need to listen to more KJ, I only know one album, but I know they were awesome.

    I'm not trying to poach your thread - Shane passing has not sunk in for me yet.  I've been listening to a lot of KJ the last two days.  I recommend listening to their song "Eighties" and then listen to Nirvana's "Come As You Are".  You will quickly notice how similar the guitar work is.

    I'm well familiar w/ that situation, and the lawsuit back in the day. 

    Saw KJ open for Tool a few years ago... I was pretty psyched to hear Seeing Red live.

    Somehow, I had been under the impression that Shane was doing better, but no, now he is gone.  Very sad.  Another great one gone, died what we think of as too soon, but lived life to the fullest.

    Damn, this hits hard.

    I was lucky enough to see the Pogues around a dozen times......they were an explosive live band!
  • Dirty Old Town & Fairy Tale of New York always make me tear up... between the passion behind them and the memories they invoke... just tragically beautiful songs. 

    It's been some time since I spun a Pogues album but they were a pretty huge part of my youth. MacGowan's passing doesn't come as a surprise (except for the fact he made it to 2023 / 65yo w/ the way he lived) but hits hard all the same.

    Big regret that I never got off my rear and saw them live. There will never be a better Xmas song than "Fairytale of New York". When I think of his lyrics I think of sadness, joy, and resilience. He will be missed.
    1991- Hollywood Palladium, California with Temple of the Dog, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains -RIP Magazine Show Oct. 6th
    1992- Lollapalooza, Irvine, California
    Nothing since then. I suck.
    2016- Fenway Park, Boston - Both glorious nights
    2022- Oakland Night 2

    They were amazing live....imagine punk music played very fast with several acoustic instruments.

    Saw them twice, 1st time in '94 after MacGowan had left the band...and then again in 2011 w/ MacGowan and they killed it. 
    As fate would have it, that was the last time they played Boston. 


    & yeah… MacGowan was plastered of course and fell on his ass during the performance.  :D

    Edit: apologies, those pictures are shit... MacGowan wasn't the only one who was hammered.

    Glen and Lisa were magnificent doing this, truly can't think of anyone else who could have given it more. 

    Nick Cave's performance of Rainy Night In Soho too... just beautiful.
