Philip Chevron brought a new Irish music to the masses

I was stunned and saddened today when I heard PHILIP CHEVRON had lost his cancer battle, and had died age 56.
Chevron brought a new IRISH MUSIC to the masses, first as the guitarist for the influential punk band THE RADIATORS FROM SPACE, then wielding guitar, banjo and mandolin for the influential folk-punk band THE POGUES (for whom he wrote the anthem, "Thousands are Sailing."
I listened to the Radiators en route home, still stunned that one of my favorite musicians was gone.
