The Clash - The Joe Strummer Story album flac
The sudden death in December 2002 of Joe Strummer, frontman of the legendary Seventies punk band The Clash, robbed the world of rock and roll music of on. .
Before his death, Joe Strummer could hardly get arrested. Afterwards, he was feted as a rock icon. This is the inside story of the solo years struggle of a punk rock warlord. 15 years after the undignified demise of The Clash, Strummer had not released any new music for a decade.
