R.I.P. Philip Chevron (The Pogues)

Who knew when I featured The Pogues last week it'd be ''celebrating'' the final few days of one of their members' lives?

Indeed, guitarist Philip Chevron died of cancer at the age of 56 yesterday.

Prior to joining The Pogues (first as a replacement, then as a permanent member), he'd been a founding member of punk band Radiators From Space.

Cancer takes no prisoners, but no ones survives Life, either. All you can do is do your best and try to leave a lasting impression, hopefully a good one, perhaps even bring joy and light to the world. Chevron certainly did that.
