    Default RIP Phil Chevron

    Possibly a name not familiar to all of you, but yesterday Phil Chevron, guitarist with The Pogues, passed away peacefully after a long battle with cancer.

    Dubliner Phil was an keen follower of the Reds, having been introduced to them by The Pogues' bass player, Daryl Hunt. I spoke to Daryl on a number of occasions in A Block about Phil’s passion for the club and it was a real pleasure to finally meet him at a Charlton away game where his love for all things Red what clearly evident. Such was his passion he even moved to West Bridgford so he could be nearer to the club.

    I’ve read somewhere else that when it became apparent that Phil was gravely ill, a supporter wrote to the club to requested that in tribute to him we should replace ‘Chelsea Dagger’ when Forest score a goal with the medley from 'Fiesta' by The Pogues. The supporter didn’t get a reply.

    Sadly it’s too late for Phil but not too late for them to correct a wrong. Can I ask that everyone bombards Fawaz and Jimbo with requests to play this little snippet for a legendary supporter if not on a permanent basis then just for the next goal we score, hopefully against Bournemouth. I’m sure Daryl, Phil’s family and Phil’s friends would be delighted with such a fitting tribute.

    I didn't know he was a Forest fan. That would be a great idea.

    Be a huge improvement on Chelsea fucking Dagger (as admittedly would be no goal music).

    A cracking idea and fitting tribute though

    Very sad news. Phil was a massive Forest fan. He often featured in the programme after presenting awards on behalf of the Ireland branch. Every time The Pogues played locally he dedicated "Thousands are Sailing" to all the Forest fans who had crossed the river to see the band. Top guy.
    RIP Phil Chevron.

    I love The Pogues, so it's a "Yes" from me.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    I used to play in a band with Daryl, in fact I slept on his couch when I first moved to London. I know Daryl first dragged Phil along to some Forest games & he got the bug, who can blame him. I remember standing on the grass mound behind the goal at Plough Lane with Phil & Daryl (we lost 4-1) the last game before a league cup final(Luton?) & no one wanted to get injured by those rough Dons. I won't pretend to be best mates with Phil but I did know him & played on the same bill as the Pogues many times. Happy days & Phil was always a really nice guy. Always had time for people. I regret that the last time he came into work, he was in & out in 10 minutes & I never got the chance to talk to him. RIP Phil, one of the good ones.

    +1 on this - an excellent idea!

    By "relegation battle", do you mean 7th, 12th or 14th?

    Was he really? I'd have expected myself to know something like that.

    RIP Phil, Fiesta is a brilliant idea.

    Agree 100%. Fiesta would be a great choice if we must have music, as it is such a fast burst of music it wouldn't result in everyone doing a daft dance to it but would still get people going.

    And a great tribute. Wasn't aware he had died. Sad.

    Brilliant idea.This needs to happen....

    Daryl Hunt is a Nottingham hero. Played in several local bands. He even brought his energetic post-punk power pop combo "The Favourites" to play our school! (Perhaps you were in the Favourites Strangelove?)

    Sleeve notes on one of "The Favourites 45's" ,dedicate the tune to "Birtles drilling it in"..... Total legend.

    Phil's passing is a great reason to make the change

    A big no from me. The band wrote a few pro-republican/IRA songs.

    Given that it's a vast improvement, and infinitely less embarrassing than that Chelsea Dagger shite, Fiesta could be a celebration of the Third Reich for all I care!

    Favourites school gig was at Carlton Le Willows. Quite radical for the time. Post punk and all that

    C'mon, if you were a Catholic 14 year old in 1973, with foreign troops on your street, how do you think you would feel? Not condoning it but walk a mile in my shoes, as the saying goes.

    Sorry mate but for the life of me I can't remember that gig, although I must have been there.
