Macgowan Doesn't Sleep

Hellraising Irish folk-rocker SHANE MACGOWAN parties so hard he often goes a whole week without sleep.
The Pogues frontman admits he can survive for seven days without going to bed, and will only "crash out" for a long nap so he continue drinking.
He tells Britain's Mojo magazine, "I generally stay awake for about a week. I get catnaps, and then when I'm really exhausted I crash out for a good long while and carry on, you know what I mean? What I'm interested in doing is having a great time."
