Hi
What do we think of The Clash then?
Because I bought The Essential Clash
My favourite tracks are:
1977
London Calling
Rock The Casbah
Should I Stay Or Should I Go

This is the worst joke ever isn't it but here goes

When Joe Strummer died he had a train named after him it was called The Should I Stay Or Should I Go Express




I'm just a musical prostitute my dear!

The Clash are absolutely fantastic. My dad's favourite band, and one of my favourites.

Here's an even worse joke that I made up myself.

What do Bono's friends sing to him on his birthday?

Happy birthday U2!

I like some of their songs, but I can't particularly stand too many of them.

Joey Strummer possibly had the worst voice in rock n' roll.

Every once in a while, I get the urge to listen to 'Train In Vain', but I haven't really gotten into any of their other stuff. I do have London Calling, but - as I said - haven't listened to it much.

Is the Casbah the same 'Casbah' that Pete Bests' mother owned?

Personally, I think it should be a felony for any person over the age of 18 not to own a copy of the album "London Calling".


I have it on my mp3 player, but not the CD. Is that okay?

Mind you I have two and a half years to go yet.

And, also:

Radio Clash is my best track by them. Julien Temple who made the Sex Pistols films The Great Rock n Roll Swindle and The Filth And The Fury is currently making a documentary about Joe Strummer, that should be good.

Any idea when that will be on the telly, Barry ©?
