    Just heard the confirmed news that Joe Strummer died yesterday, aged 50.

    Sad, sad news.

    Yes indeed, the Grim Reaper of punk has been too active lately, shame that as with Mr Entwistle, Joe was soon to tour having made peace with Mick according to BBC News 24 this morning.
    It's all been said already, but makes you catch your breath when people you identify with from your own teenage years die so suddenly.
    Likewise racing driver Will Hoy also aged 50, another genuine British talent and real friendly guy who died this week.

    Joe Strummer was supposed to be getting back together with the original band to begin touring.

    Thinking the same but it's funny this thread should make an appearance as I've been listening to The Clash - The Clash and Give 'em enough rope cds over the last few days.

    /me slaps the SLF Inflammable Material cd in the player to spice up the evening and finishes it off with a little smidgeon of the Dammed.
