So Long, Joe
23 December, 2002
Such sad news…Joe Strummer has passed away. The day I listened to London Calling, I wanted to throw away every other record I owned – it was that good. For awhile, I didn’t think the tag “the only band that matters” was hype at all. In November Joe and Mick Jones and performed together for the first time since the band’s bitter break-up. They were to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March 2003. There was hope of a reunion for the show. Too bad that can’t happen now. So long, Joe.
