Shane MacGowan: A Wreck Reborn features footage of him in the dentist’s chair, plus interviews with Johnny Depp and Pete Doherty
The Pogues’ Shane MacGowan will star in Shane MacGowan: A Wreck Reborn, a documentary about the quest to fix his notoriously broken teeth. The doc will air next month through Sky Arts in the UK and will feature “footage of operations in the dentist chair,” as well as interviews with Johnny Depp and the Libertines’ Pete Doherty, as The Irish Sun reports (via Stereogum).
As MacGowan told the Sun, he previously used dentures but stopped wearing them because they made him look “like a dickhead.” But after seeing the successful corrective surgery performed on his girlfriend’s teeth, he decided to give it another go.
“I had two operations and I’ve to go back in again but most of the work is done,” he said. “It was a bit swollen for the first few days but I’m feeling good now. I’m getting used to them now.”
