Chris Salewicz was a close friend of Strummer from 1977 until Joe`s death in Christmas 2002 shook the world. With full approval and cooperation of relatives, companions and fellow musicians, he writes the definitive account of British rock `n` roll`s most fascinating of idols. An honest tribute to Joe`s life, work and huge worldwide impact. The Clash was the most influential band of its generation, producing intelligent punk anthems such as `London Calling`, `White Riot` and `Tommy Gun`. Rolling Stone voted `London Calling` the best album of the 1980s and for many they remain iconic mainstays of their generation. With his talent, good looks and laid-back attitude Joe Strummer was the driving force behind the band and the archetypal front-man of a punk band. Apart from his own band, The Mescaleros, Strummer played with The Pogues and featured in several films, including Alex Cox`s `Walker` and `Straight To Hell`, and Jim Jarmusch`s `Mystery Train`. Strummer`s untimely death in December 2002 shook the world and cemented his iconic status. He received extraordinary tributes from musicians around the world. Billy Bragg said: `The Clash was the greatest rebel rock band of all time.Their commitment to making political pop culture was the defining mark of the British punk movement`. Bono is quoted as saying: `The Clash was the greatest rock band -- they wrote the rule book for U2`. This book is an emotional and compelling account of Strummer`s life, and a comprehensive insight into the man behind The Clash. Chris Salewicz is better placed than anyone to write about Strummer`s life, his work and his huge worldwide impact. Both Strummer and The Clash transcended music stardom to become heroes to their fans and peers -- this is an honest tribute to them, and the best and last word on the subject.
