The Clash/Joe Strummer


Recommended Posts

Saw Joe Strummer live a few times and he never failed to put on a great show. Remember one gig at the Barrowlands on a Sunday night when he played with The Mescaleros and I'll never forget the look on his face when he came onstage and realised that he'd filled the place on a Sunday. One of those moments that make live music so worthwhile and made better by the fact that it was coupled with one of the nicest, most honest men in music over the last thirty years or so.


Here's a couple of his best moments for anyone that's interested. Video quality for The Clash isn't always great unfortunately, but this is The Clash doing White Man (In Hammersmith Palais)



and this is Joe and The Mescaleros doing Straight To Hell (Incidentally, it's the same tune that The Pogues play before coming on stage)
