I deeply miss my friend Joe Strummer. He was the strongest of men, a real inspirational leader, a guy who never seemed to tire of listening to people and talking to them, learning and teaching all the time. He had true compassion for everyone he met. He was the nicest and also the most fun loving person I’ve known.

The Clash, MA – 1979The Clash were a great, powerful live band and this shot captures that energy and excitement.

This is the centerpiece of a video for Joe Strummer’s version of Bob Marley’s “Redemption Song” from Joe’s new Mescaleros album “Streetcore”. The video, directed by Josh Cheuse shows artists Dr. Revolt and Zephyr creating this mural on the wall of the Niagara Bar in the East Village, while many of Joe’s well known friends and local neighbors watch.
Sheena & the Rokkets were among the many bands at the Fuji Rock Festival. In spite of the rain, more than 100,000 people came to dance to the music and had a great time. The Festival site is very large, set up on a golf/ski resort. It was impossible to see all of the more than 100 acts but there is so much going on all over the place that we saw some great shows and had lots of good… read more →
Joe Strummer and his band the “Mescaleros” came to New York to play five shows at the new venue “St. Ann’s Warehouse” under the Brooklyn Bridge. What a week it was! The shows were great and we stayed up partying till dawn each night. Joe played new material from the Mescaleros two albums, as well as some old favorites from the Clash days.
Joe Strummer and his band the Mescaleros played their new album, “Global A Go-Go” at the Virgin Megastore in Times Square. The new songs are very good, with a mix of many musical forms coming together so well that once you hear it you want to keep playing it over and over. They are playing a mini tour of record stores in major cities to be followed by a full scale tour in the fall. Watch for them!
