Joe Strummer – August 2012 Classic Rock Birthdays
Joe Strummer was one-man testimony to the power rock and roll has to actually change the world. Having passed in Dec. 2002, he was known best as the frontman, co-founder, singer and rhythm guitarist of the English rock band the Clash.
This coming Aug. 21, he would have been 60 years old. And while he might be gone physically, this guy has a legacy that's sticking around forever. The most recent demonstration of his music's staying power comes in the form of an upcoming film titled 'The Rise and Fall of The Clash,' a chronicle of the band's all-too-early peak that features archival footage and interviews.
