Macgowan Is 'Unfairly' Labelled A Drunk - Bandmate
Hellraising rocker SHANE MACGOWAN is unfairly labelled a shambling drunk, according to his THE POGUES bandmate TERRY WOODS. MACGowan was recently accused of taking his love of alcohol too far at a concert in Chicago, Illinois, when he took to the stage late and appeared under the influence throughout his act. But Woods insists the 50-year-old was really ill:"He gets landed with an awful lot of s**t that isn't either fair or true, and that was one of them. "He'd eaten something that didn't agree with him, and it was as simple as that. He wasn't drunk. Definitely not."
