Merry Christmas everyone! We also need to say happy birthday to the Pogues frontman, Shane MacGowan, who was born on this day in 1957. He shares his birthday with Annie Lennox, solo artist and formerly one half of Eurythmics. Happy birthday both!
Sadly today is also the day a number of great artists died, so let’s take a second to remember Dean Martin, James Brown, Eartha Kitt and Vic Chesnutt.
