Tell me this isn’t the most Irish thing you’ve ever heard:
Shane MacGowan of the Celtic punk band The Pogues died last month, and was laid to rest last Friday at a church in Dublin. Mourners included Nick Cave, Johnny Depp, Bob Geldof, and the president of Ireland.
After the funeral, there was a small, invite-only celebration at a pub called The Thatched Cottage. There’s no word who was there, but one thing we know is that they didn’t have to pay for their drinks.
Shane took care of that. Before his death, he had set aside $12,500 for the tab. A friend of his says, quote, “It was Shane’s last request.”
