RIP Phil Chevron

The Pogues guitarist Phillip (Ryan) Chevron has passed away in his hometown of Dublin from cancer. He was only 56. Chevron was the author of, among many other great songs, The Pogues' classic tale of emigration "Thousands Are Sailing."

Here is a clip of him singing that beautiful song followed by the full studio version.

Rest in peace.
