How tragic that her fans think a bottle of Smirnoff is a fitting farewell to a woman they loved — for it was vodka that killed her. Or that a packet of cigarettes was an appropriate offering to leave at this shrine, given she suffered from emphysema, a smoking-related lung disease.


Enough said.

If you were a musician, I'd wonder if your name would pop up too--but for totally different reasons. :P

I personally think scientists should do a complete study of Shane MacGowan (of The Pogues), including genome mapping. How that bugger is still alive is beyond me. He and Keith Richards may well hold the genetic key to immortality.


Add Lemmy of Motorhead to that list... 'The only thing I've never done is heroine, it is the only drug I've seen seen kill people. First is turns you into a thief and a whore, and you die in a public toilet with a needle in your arm and an embolism. I don't think so.'
