    How Lawyers and the entire Legal system can sleep night's is Beyond Me...Kirsty a lovely Lady with young family at the top of her game in the Music industry with everything to live for. Taken from the world by some Rich *bleep* Who basically just threw he spare change at it and swept it under the carpet .... Sorry 19 years may have past but that still sickens me and makes a mockery of ALL laws in my view hence yes I'm still angry inside about it and Fuming inside Knowing the fact if the rolls were reversed and Rich *bleeps* daughter had been killed By Kirsty's Boat a entirely Different verdict would have been passed .... Kirsty's Music back then and still today is a large part of my life's soundtrack and yes i guess in away i love her for that. I miss you Angel

  2. Waynesays:

    I got into Kirsty MaColl via Tracey Ullman singing "They Don't Know". The love affair has never ended. Kirsty was unique - an intelligent, witty songwriter with a distinctive voice and a catalogue of brilliant songs. It still upsets me when I read about how she died, and that she died at all. I believe in karma and I truly hope everyone aboard the Percalito gets what they deserve. Love and peace to Kirsty's sons, Jamie and Louis, and to Kirsty's brave mother, Jean. And Kirsty, wherever you are, god bless you and thank you from the bottom of my heart for the great songs - which I still listen to.

  3. Paulsays:

    Like Richards post, I didn’t know who was singing but liked the song ‘New England’ playing on the radio. My better half told me the story and I looked online. Such a tragedy, not just the loss of a mother so young but the apparent cover up. I hope Kirsty’s sons have grown into fine young men and I am sure all the family are proud of them. Rest in peace Kirsty...

  4. Gerhardsays:

    Schande!!!

  5. Richard Murphysays:

    Listening to the radio on the way to work and Kirsty’s ‘New England’ came on - my wife commented that she had not heard the song in ages and I said ‘yes, it’s a Kirsty MacColl song’. My wife replied ‘oh I haven’t heard about her in a long time’ - I replied that she had died quite a few years back tragically (but I didn’t know the exact circumstances - I thought a car accident). My wife did not even know. I decided to look up online and was horrified when I read the details. What an absolute tragedy and horrendous cover up by the corrupt Mexican authorities! RIP Kirsty - a beautiful lady and brilliant singer.

  6. Andrewsays:

    It’s the oddest thing but I only ever listened to classical music in my youth and discovered Kirsty quite by accident when her albums were played endlessly (in a nice way) by my partner at the time. My goodness, what an effect her music had on me. She was born a few days after me in 1959 and I think how terribly unfair it is she is not alive today. She will always be remembered by me and, I’m sure, by countless others for the wonderful musician and human being that she was.

  7. F.Stein.says:

    Just remembering Kirsty today,the birthday of Shane McGowan and seven days after her anniversary. Never forgotten.

  8. DJCsays:

    What a thoughtful and meaningful response, thank you.

  9. Donna Crooksays:

    The same as the individual who commented below, I too have just watched the tv documentary about the making of ‘Fairtyale of New York’. This is the ONLY Christmas ‘pop’ song I like and in fact love. It really moves something inside of me when I listen to it, reminding me of Christmas’ at home with my long deceased parents and 3 siblings (one also deceased) when I was a child The song is a reminder of the reality that Christmas is frequently not the fantasy played out on tv; the perfect, large family gathering around a huge decorated tree in a beautiful home, stuffed full of turkey and gifts. Christmas is for lots of people a time of sadness, loss, loneliness and real suffering. I have experienced such Christmas’ myself but this song has always made me remember that I was not alone in my ‘aloneness’, which was in a way comforting in itself. Kirstys’ voice is truly uplifting. Every year it warms my heart despite the gritty lyrics of the song itself. The mixture of Shane’s gravel tones along with Kirsty’s purer and equally very unique voice makes me think everytime I hear it that even in the face of terrible adversity there is often a silver lining if you care to look hard enough for it. Kirsty’s death was a tragedy that should never have happened. Kirsty’s beautiful family and many friends should never have suffered that, or the pain of having to fight for justice for Kirsty. In a ‘just’ world justice would be a given and the very least they could expect. I send my love and prayers to Kirsty, that you may rest in eternal peace, to her mother, two sons, the rest of her family, and to James. God bless. Xx

  10. JJsays:

    I just watched a documentary on the making of Fairy tale of new York, my favourite Xmas song ever. Such a tragic end for a talented and beautiful lady, very upsetting to her how she died, her poor children and family. R.I.P Kirsty x

  11. Lilly vasilsays:

    I wish the best for your mum , I can’t even imagine the pain. U are an inspiration, raw talent.thank you. Your fellow musician

  12. Paul Fidlersays:

    Dear Kirsty, you may be gone but you will never be forgotten. For the past 27 years “Walking down Maddison” has been the last song I listen to after a night out or with friends. Electric Landlady is one of my all time favorite Albums. Fairytale of New York just played on my Spotify Xmas list and I felt I needed to tell how much Joy your music has brought to my life. You died a Hero and deserved justice. Hope your family is aware of how many live you continue to touch with your music. . “ Fron the sharks in the penthouse, to rats in the basement........it’s not that far.❤️

  13. says:

    One life. Live it. She did. We should too.

  14. Lara M Yulesays:

    Just listening to 'Fairytale of New York' as Xmas approaches..am thinking about Kirsty MacColl, as I have done every Xmas for the past 17 years, since that awful, tragic accident. This song is a btiful reminder of Kirsty and a legacy that ensures she will never, ever be forgotten.❤?❤

  15. Jonathan Haydocksays:

    Thoughts with Kirsty's family and friends today

  16. Julie Lovesays:

    Thinking of Kirsty’s family today as her anniversary approaches. So sad that justice was not served. My son also died whilst on holiday abroad in 2009 and I’ve fought for years for more support for families in Scotland and the UK when a loved one dies abroad. Ironically my sons birthday is 18th Dec which is the day Kirsty was tragically killed. ?❤️

  17. Tanya Mcneilsays:

    I so agree with your comment. There is so much more that can be done Every Christmas I think of her.

  18. Lilysays:

    dad preciously worked with kirsty, an amazing woman. The rich and powerful should not be allowed to get away with such awful thing.

  19. Terrysays:

    Thank you Kirsty, you still bring joy to the world after all these years. You will never be forgotten. Much love from Dublin, Ireland.

  20. rksays:

    I will continue to marvel at the very special talent of Kirsty MacColl for all of my days. I am ever thankful for the time she had to create her btiful, affecting music, which I'happy to say brightens many of my days. So sorry for the Family's loss. Much Love from New Mexico.

  21. ANTONY BONDsays:

    Remembering Kirsty on what would have been her birthday. Her music is still in my heart

  22. Collinsays:

    Btiful voice. Arizona is listening tonight.

  23. Julessays:

    Just heard "In These Shoes" totally out of the blue - still makes me gh. Missing you

  24. Bartholomew Henrysays:

    I'in Cozumel right now staying with friends who live here who are scuba instructors. My friend Julie here lost her son, Jacob and sometimes her loss overwhelms her and I always put on Alegria and say we need to go to the water to feel better. Kirsty's music has been a part of my life for over 25 years. One night I had the chance to meet her but I stayed home bese I was shy. I regret that. She sent with a friend a message on a picture of her "Dear Bart, sorry you couldn't make it tonight, see you another time, Love, Kirsty", something like that. I thought, "oh don't fret, you'll meet her". But I never did. But I have a feeling I know her on the other side! Actually, I'sure. :)

  25. Steve Knightsays:

    I have just read the book written by Kirsty's mother 'Sun On The Water'. A book that I could not put down and as you read it cover to cover you can certainly tell how much Kirsty was loved by her family,friends and her fans. It really made me feel emotional just reading,and has made an impact how much Jean and her family/friends have tried to get Justice done. May I through these pages encourage you all to persevere and hope one day this case is resolved. Thanks you for sharing your outpouring love and dedication,in memory of your btiful ghter. Thank you.

  26. tracey smithsays:

    Just been reading the book sun on the water written by Kristy's mother. (the brilliant life and tragic death of Kirsty Macoll). What a brilliant person she was and she had a btiful voice (like an angel). Just such a waste to lose somebody in such a tragic accident. And can not believe that no body was blamed for sing her death when she was happily diving with her two young boy's. She will never be forgotten and she would have been very proud of her boy's Xx

  27. Tomas Dahlinsays:

    favourite artist! I mourne her tragic death every time at this time of the year. All Love to her and her family from us in Sweden! ❤️

  28. Tomas Dahlinsays:

    Well spoken!

  29. Tomas Dahlinsays:

    Well spoken!

  30. Georgeysays:

    We have listened to Fairy tale of New York every Xmas in the salon and every year when it's on so many times for all the clients, I remind them about Justice for Kirsty So many people think she was killed by a jet ski??? I then tell them the real story that the guy who was driving the speed boat is still walking free Amazing voice and an amazing lady and she will never be forgottenI hope one day you all have the justice Kirsty deserves. Xxx

  31. Carolesays:

    Every time fairytale of new york comes on, it reminds us of what a great voice we have lost can't believe it's 16years already, rest in peace kinsey, we miss you xx

  32. Samsays:

    I would also like to see it. Please let us know if you have any information on where it can be viewed. Many thanks

  33. chrissays:

    rry Xmas btiful..wherever you are ..we only met once but you'll always have a place in my heart

  34. SBsays:

    Remembering Kirsty today. Watched A New England on YouTube with my children, and thought again what a marvellously warm and wonderful singer (and woman) she was. RIP Kirsty.

  35. lsays:

    Hope justice will happen for Kirsty.

  36. Adam Johnsays:

    Fairytale of New York has always been my favourite Christmas song of all time, a couple of years ago I started reading about the song and the artists. Me, only being 11 at the time, wasn't around when it first came out but I wanted to find out more. I came across Kirsty and her tragic death. However I didn't go into great detail finding out more, now i'16 and Fairytale of New York came on my Christmas playlist and this year I went into more detail. The anger I have towards the attitude of the Mexicans is so surreal, it makes my blood boil. They brushed it off as if nothing happened. I understand there's not much more that can be done now, but I just wanted to say that Kirsty was a fantastic artist, and whoever the excuse for a human being was in control of the boat will get what they deserve one day.

  37. HN Andersonsays:

    I confess I don't know much of Kristy's work, but every year at Christmas time I hear one of my favorite songs, the Pogue's "Fairytale of NY". This year I read some articles about the song which led me to investigate those voices behind it. Sadly, I came upon the story of Kristy's untimely death. We can all agree it was shocking and horrific. My "mother's heart" feels for you, Jean. I pray for your peace. Those who have wronged your family will have to answer to a higher power eventually, and their money and power cannot escape that.

  38. Vanessa Bainsays:

    Kirsty was a very talented artist who was also a mum and what happened to her was very sad I hope you have found some peace in your life you did a great thing for her and her children with this campaign. Love to you xxx

  39. Tom Bowdensays:

    God bless you Kirsty.

  40. Keith Berrysays:

    Is there anywhere to watch or buy the documentary? BBC says it's not on their website any longer.

  41. chael Jacobsays:

    Kirsty was such a great loss

  42. suzysunshine7says:

    I'll never forget hearing the news of Kirsty's death. It was such a chaotic Christmastime and so the only time I had free was by staying up all one night to make a last minute Christmas Cake and several batches of Mince Pies amongst lots of other things for the Freezer. I just had a really great baking session listening to Christmas Carols and songs including Fairytale of New York before I switched on Radio Four. Suddenly on the BBC News came the terrible announcement. I just slumped to the floor in shock and tears unable to quite take it in? Very few people in the public eye have ever sed such a sorrowful reaction as that in me, yet Kirsty did that night. It was a tragic and cruel death for such a lovely lady with a truly wonderful voice and fantastic sense of humour. I wish her family all she would wish them herself x RIP x

  43. Christopher Moransays:

    I'd like to come to the annual celebration of Kirsty's birthday this year. I was involved in the justice for Kirsty campaign which sadly we never got. Can you tell me the arrangements for this year. I'd love to be there and celebrate the life of this talented loved woman. Christopher Moran

  44. Bruce Gustafsonsays:

    Kirsty had one of the most angelic and btiful voices that I have ever heard, or will ever hear. My prayers.

  45. carmelsays:

    Will always remember you Kirsty btiful talented angel.

  46. louise carvillesays:

    I am so sad Kirsty is gone. She is so much part of us especially at this time if year. I think the world knows an injustice was done

  47. Kevin lfieldsays:

    Find a way x kevin

  48. Kevin Mleysays:

    How weak I seem in reciting , hopefully to Kirstys friends and family, more pointedly to Kirsty who is amusts us, Thank you Kirsty Maccoll for the days, for your words, delivery, spirit and SOUL, we do miss you, you got it Bang on, words, sentiment, delivery and sentiment. From the pent house to the pavement, M's Ottis to Fairy Tale, thank you, thank you, thank you xXx

  49. Schsays:

    Every year, at christmas time, I am reminded of the injustice done to you and your family. It saddens me that those guilty of your death have still not been held to account - and even more that the country I live in is increasingly turning into a place, like Mexico, where justice can be bought and sold by the wealthy. Have all our struggles been in vain? I can only hope that the younger generations will recognise the value of the rule of law, justice, democracy, and freedom of speech, before these sacred principles are lost to us all. Rest in peace, dear Kirsty.

  50. jacqui lovellsays:

    Thinking of you Kirsty on this day of the anniversary of your death. You gave so much joy to people in your short life, God bless to you and your family xxx

  51. tthias Ruhlmannsays:

    I hope justice will be done for Kirsty and for her family's peace, I always think of her and even more around christmas. Sending love to you. She'll never be forgotten. xxx

  52. Graham Whitingsays:

    Let's honour her today, in every Chip Shop in New England; and, again, when the bells are ringing out for Christmas Day. Thank you for the days, those endless days, those sacred days … one day, you’ll be waiting there.

  53. Andrewssays:

    15 years. Always remembered. Unique talent and human being x #justiceforkirsty

  54. Johnsays:

    Kristy was a marvelous talent. She was taken way to soon. But the love she left behind touches people even time her voice cones out of a,set of speakers or a radio.

  55. lo de Sousa Pintosays:

    They have been playing Fairytale of New York constantly these days. Through it, I learned about Kirsty, and it saddens me deeply to hear of the tragic event that took her so violently and much too early from this world. Your music and personality will keep on opening peoples hearts and inspiring them - for times to come Rip

  56. david manbysays:

    Keep Kirstys mememory alive

  57. Bill Normansays:

    Sorry my earlier comment got scrambled somehow John Lennon's death was a worldwide grief for the loss of a hero. To me Kirsty's passing felt like losing a friend or family member. Obviously its 15 years on Friday and Fairytale will once again be a hit . But lets remember the best LP of the entire 80s Kite and its glorious follow ups sand say to her family that she will NEVER be forgotten

  59. Karen Whitesays:

    Hi there, I'trying to contact a member of Kirsty's "immediate" family (ideally Louis, but the email address I have for him is no longer valid). Are you able to let me have an email address for Louis, or Jamie, or Jean? Alternatively, if I send a detailed message through this medium will you pass it on for me? Thanks in anticipation!

  60. rk Lynchsays:

    I never forgot the shock and sadness I felt when I heard the news of the death of such a talented and btiful singer. I will always remember the song "new England " as being one of those songs which transport me instantly back to a significant time in my youth. Kirsty was one of the best, and I will never forget her. I never had the honour of meeting her, but I will always remember her. I hope her killers are brought to justice. God bless you, Kirsty

  61. Alainsays:

    I miss you, Kirsty. I'glad to learn that a fight for justice was put up on your behalf.

  62. rgaretsays:

    Just shed a tear whilst listening to Kirsty on the music channel always think about Kirsty and her family especially at this time of year and the total injustice. Xxxxxx

  63. l Turnersays:

    A sad day on what would have been Kirsty's 56th birthday. Gone, but never to be forgotten. Thank you for the wonderful musical legacy you left us.

  64. Samuel Rummersays:

    You will never know how much loss and sadness is left in the loss of Kirsty! Rest In Peace Btiful Lady!

  65. Werner Hörasays:

    Dear Ms. MacColl, my name is Werner Höra. I am from Germany and I play guitar and sing to it. I write to you not in case of Kirsty but in case of the song "dirty old town" from her father. I have written a German text to the melody of "dirty old town". It`s about the town I live in, called Biberach in the south of Germany. I want to ask you now, whether I can make a CD with this song and make it public. I wish you still a nice week and I am looking forward to hear from you. Kind regards, Werner Höra

  70. C Evanssays:

    I've just been telling my son all about Kirsty and playing her music. He loves it. I'sorry he's too young to have seen her but glad there is so much on the internet to show him.

  71. Sophie Wildesays:

    I was just watching an old edition of Top Of The Pops from 1980.it was 'Jonah Louis..Only Find me in the Kitchen at parties ' and I spotted the lovely Kirsty as a backing singer..What a gorgeous woman she was,a real strength about her that is not seen these days "pop" stars..Kirsty symbolises the female strength too that really politically inspired me in my teenage years,I'just about to turn 48 next month and hopefully have tried to stay as true to myself as I can be.I feel we've gone backwards since the 1980's ,just glad we had musicians like Kirsty and her dad Ewan to lend weight to good political ses.So sad that she's been gone so many years,I can't believe how long it's been.Love to KM's mum and kids..rest in peace.never forgotten. ,love Sophie (Brighton UK)

  73. Tony Batleysays:

    Just come back from London today (27th April 2015) after seeing a fantastic Elvis exhibition at the O2. My partner's a big Kirsty fan and I took her photo sat on the bench in Soho Square. She was ecstatic! I later heard the actual song and it moved me to tears. RIP, you left far sooner than you should have, sing with the angels now.

  74. Kirstysays:

    Your ghter was an astonishing musician, she keeps me company on my ipod almost daily. She lives on through her wonderful songs and brilliant lyrics - I've been listening to her for as along as I can remember and always will. Kirsty Maccollyou are a constant for us all. Sleep wellxx

  75. Ian J Halesowensays:

    The voice of an angel, you must have been so proud. So glad I had Kirsty in my life.

  77. James K Hsays:

    Thank you for the days you gave us Kirsty

  78. r Heifnersays:

    Simply put, I adored Kirsty. I am terribly sorry for her family and for the world, for losing such a bright light way too soon.

  79. nicasays:

    I am a die hard Kirsty fan and I always will be. I think she is a true legend who will always be remembered for her kindness and wonderful voice. Such talent. I love all of her songs and albums. My favourites have to be Victims , Celestine and I can't continue to list them as there are loads I love! She was taken to soon. She will always be remembered and as a fan I will keep her alive in my heart. A legend was taken from us too soon. I hope that all of us Kirsty fans will stand together in hope and success of finding justice for Kirsty and that we make sure that the man who killed her will never forget what he did. Kirsty Anna MacColl I love you then as I love you still. Forever in our hearts. God bless and sleep well. xxxxxxxxxxx

  80. Davidsays:

    I had 'Tropical Brainstorm' on in my car yesterday, an album thought I'd bought back in 2000. I also remember seeing her with Billy Bragg in Neath in 1994, supporting the Tower Colliery miners. The nature of Kirsty's death still saddens me. We lost such a great talent and an all-round lovely person. But I will never tire of listening to her music for as long as I live.

  81. fransays:

    Her voice and songs will long be remembered but the man that killed her will not you live on kirsty

  82. Bevsays:

    kite will always be one of the best albums of all time .She was taken too soon. X

  83. Jayne Robertssays:

    Sat on a beach in Cozumel and listened to Kirsty sing 'the fairy tale of New York' on 23 December 2014. Her music lives on and for that we must be grateful. I continued to listen to her album and thought what an extraordinary talent. Her music gives me so much pleasure every time I listen to her. Love and thoughts to all her family.

  84. Neale Reynoldssays:

    Big fan of Kirsty's since picking up the pic disc single of "They Don't Know". It's hard to believe how much time has elapsed now, still think about her pretty much every day, and her songs are standing the test of time magnificently! Cheers, and have a fabulous 2015 when it comes.

  85. Glennsays:

    There is a reason God limits our days. To make each one precious. With endless time, nothing is special. With no loss or sacrifice, we can't appreciate what we have. We now appreciate how special Kirsty was. May the road rise to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face. The rain fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, may God hold you Kirsty in the palm of his hand ..

  88. lanie, David & Lydia from Cardiffsays:

    I bought my husband another CD from Kirsty for Christmas. We listened to her while opening the presents yesterday. No doubt she will end up singing to David in the car when he returns to work in 2015. Kirsty's spirit certainly lives on with us here. Thank you Kirsty for being a part of our life. If only we could turn back time… xx sending much love to family, friends and forever fans of Kirsty xx

  89. Leesays:

    New England , and fairy tail in New York , will stay with me forever, and when I here or play the song the only thing I think of is Kirsty , I did not know you but wish I had met you, Lee x

  90. Carla Cavanaghsays:

    Truth and justice exist in all our hearts. It is a worthy and often heart rendering task to fight for public recognition of these! I hope that the guilty parties can't sleep knowing they took the life of a btiful woman, then covered it up. Kirsty's truth is known by those who knew and loved her. Her voice is loved the world over and the tragic story of her death saving her son and the injustices that followed, will be told time and time again. There is no justice that would fit what her family have suffered, but I hope the truth is circulated, and the love and support of every right minded person is felt by the family! xx

  91. Alan MacKaysays:

    Having just watched the wonderful "Fairytale of New York", my thoughts turned to Kirsty and her tragic death. Her loss to the world of music as a talented singer-songwriter must be as nothing compared to her loss as a ghter. Mexican justice is so easily bought but if karma really exists then the scales will eventually balance for Kirsty.

  92. ll Rainesays:

    Dear Jean and all your family my heart again goes out to you all at this time of the year. I just wish you could have got justice for dear Kirsty her memory will always live on God Bless you all kindest regards MELL x

  93. Frances Spicersays:

    How terribly sad, so young, such a fantastic distinctive voice. How typical of a rich men's "justice". As a mother I lnow we never ever get over our loss. My heart goes out to her and all Kirsty's family.
