Tillykke til The Pogues’ Shane MacGowan, der mandag eftermiddag blev gift med sin Victoria på Københavns Rådhus. Sidstnævnte har op til brylluppet overfor The Irish Times beskrevet den store kærlighed således:
– I was awe-struck by him. I became consumed by the thought of him. He says that he felt the same way, that we were destined to be together. But ours were not to be easy, uncomplicated lives and ours was not to be an uncomplicated love affair. We grabbed hold of each other and hung on for a ride that took us through a world of glamour and fame, creativity and ecstasy, drink, drugs and crazy, wild sex and on to madness, self-destruction and despair, violence, death, betrayal, rage separation and sadness and on and on towards revelation, renewal, compassion and hope for the future. When he answered the door to me after having missed his flight to the United States to open for Bob Dylan, and there was blood pouring out of his mouth because he had eaten a Beach Boys record, it looked as though it was the 100 tabs of acid that were the problem and not the gin and tonic.
