Remembering Kirsty MacColl, Who Died 17 Years Ago

A friend reminded me that it's the anniversary of the death of Kirsty MacColl, one of Britain's most underrated singer/songwriters of all time. Haven't had a chance to watch this yet -- wanted to throw it up while it was still the official date -- but my friend warns "you'll cry at the end...doesn't matter that we know what's coming. sigh. only the good ones get killed by fucking speedboats." RIP, sweet lady.

UPDATE: Just watched this hourlong documentary and cried my eyes out, as promised. Damian wasn't familiar with Kirsty and was also blown away, especially when he heard the song "Dear John." xo

Kirsty was just 41 when she died in a freak accident. She was survived by two sons by her music producer ex-hubby, Steve Lillywhite.
