So Joe Strummer is gone.

It's pretty pointless to eulogize a celebrity you didn't know anything about, but I can say that The Clash always sound right to me, no matter what age I've been or what's going on in my life. I saw Joe Strummer live only once, on The Pogues' Hell's Ditch Tour, when he was filling in for Shane MacGowan. I remember that it wasn't exactly like a Pogues show, but it was still great, with the band doing old Clash songs as well as their own tunes.

I'm off to spin White Man in Hammersmith Palais.

(Nice Achewood tribute)
