My son Colin put me onto this interview with Pogues frontman Shane MacGowan on the Henry Rollins show. MacGowan, who has modeled his career on his idol Brendan Behan, still shows a glimmer of the rare intelligence, and creative genius that once shown brightly through the haze of alcohol. There's also a performance of The Irish Rover at the Henry Rollins site, here. Reviled MacGowan handler, Joey Cashman, on pennywhistle.
