Philip Chevron, one of Ireland's best loved musicians died yesterday at the age of 56 after a long battle with cancer. The Dublin born musician was a member of the The Radiators from Space & The Pogues. Cait O'Riordan talks about this very special man & his life.
Lead guitarist with The Pogues & founding member of The Radiators from Space, had been given the all clear after five years battling cancer but it has returned & it is inoperable. Friends & collaborators have come together for a musical testimonial. In the great tradition of football testimonials, the event takes place this Saturday night August 24th at the Olympia Theatre in Dublin. Joining Kathryn in studio are Radiators from Space members Steve Averill & Pete Holidai & from a London studio Cait O'Riordan, exPogue & exRadiator member.
