Pogues guitarist terminally ill

Philip Chevron, guitarist in The Pogues and Radiators from Space, has revealed that his previously treated head and neck cancer has returned. The new tumor is untreatable due to location. Chevron was involved with last year's The Pogues in Paris, but is currently not playing with either of his bands.

The Pogues, while relatively inactive, are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year.
