WAY TO GO JOE
Former Clash frontman Joe Strummer will replace Shane MacGowan
as the lead singer of the Pogues for the band's current North American tour.
A press release from the great Irish group's New York publicist said the
switch was "due to Shane's ill health." Strummer should have no
problem at all getting up to speed. In '87, he replaced ailing Pogues guitarist
Philip Chevron on tour and last year he produced the band's stunning "Hell's
Ditch" album. The band is slated to hit the Warfield in San Francisco
Oct. 7 and 8.
