God Bless You Phil, I will never forget you for dedicating Thousands are Sailing to my daughter in Glasgow a few years back, You didn't have to do it and was the act of a true gentleman. I will raise a Parting Glass for you in December. It wont be the same without you. RIP.
Very, very sad news, but how appropriate that Mr C saw out both 1. His Farewell in Dublin, attended by so many loving, appreciative friends & fans 2. Setting up & posting the great news on The Forum - 'The Christmas Tour 2013'
We all be singing our hearts out to 1000s The island it is silent now But the ghosts still haunt the waves And the torch lights up a famished man Who fortune could not save
I'm a great believer that people know when the time is right, and they are ready to go - certainly looked like Phil was settled. Condloences to all the family - cherish the memories, we all will x
Terribly sad news.. He is no longer suffering. Thanks for years of enjoyment and for bringing Pogues fans from all over togethr here... If there is a heaven I am sure Joe Strummer will be there to put an arm around ya!
