I'm dreaming of a White Riot

I never remember the date that Joe Strummer died. I have friends on Facebook who do that for me (it's a boy thing).

Apparently, it was yesterday. Eight years ago.

My Facebook homepage is full of Clash videos. And I know that for my generation, this was the day the music died.

Watch this and remember why.


  1. I was in Spain and saw a copy of the French newspaper Libération on a newsstand. Its whole front page was taken up with a close-up of Strummer. I bought the paper; I've since lost it.

    Love the blog.

  2. I think I would have bought it too. Joe was very photogenic. To be honest, I always fancied him a bit.
