Some Shane McGowan news for St. Patrick's Day

Here is some unexpected news about everyone's favorite drunken Irish musician.

Oh bye gum! Shane MacGowan FINALLY gets a full set of new teeth

He is infamous for his shabby looks and gummy smile.

But all that's in the past now for Shane MacGowan.

The Pogues singer has been spotted in Malaga with a new set of gnashers

MacGowan has reportedly spent the last month in Spain having extensive dental work to repair the acute damage to his mouth caused by decades of hard partying.

During one all-day drinking session in Limerick, Ireland, he fell over a wall, smashing his teeth on a pile of bricks.

The 51-year-old became renowned for his dishevelled appearance and his terrible teeth, which eventually became his trademark.

But it wasn't popular with everyone.

One American record company airbrushed some teeth onto him on an album cover so as not to put off U.S. fans.

MacGowan had recently talked about getting his teeth fixed to stop his face 'falling apart'.

We think the dentally-discerning Yanks would approve of his pegs now...

Those are new? They look like they've been in a smoker's mouth for 50 years. I guess chicklets would've looked ridiculous.
