About the book:

This book provides a personal insight into the life of Joe Strummer, via his closest friends and the band members who knew him best. Exclusive interviewees include Mick Jones, his songwriting partner and lead guitarist of The Clash, and Don Letts, the ex-Big Audio Dynamite member and filmmaker who recorded an extensive series of interviews with Strummer on video.

His life history, his personal passions and politics, and, most of all, his musical influences, are examined from a number of personal perspectives. From the white-hot excitement of the gigs to the fervour of Strummers personal convictions, Joe Strummer & the Legend of The Clash gives a full account of the life and times of a true punk pioneer.

From the birth of The Clash during the early days of the UK punk scene in 1976, when author Kris Needs first met the band at their raw fifth gig, to massive success as the greatest rocknroll band in the world during the early Eighties all is recounted from the perspective of someone who was there, both as a fan and as a friend.
