I was obsessed with them when I was 9 years old, waaaaaaaaaaay back in 1980. My oldest brother was going to take me to see them open on the Who farewell tour. My parents, of course, said "hell no". It's the only band that ever really mattered to me, with the possible exception of the Ramones. 25 years later, and I still play them regularly. The live Strummer recordings that strummersite has made available in limited quantity are also amazing. The three voices that resonated with me, Joe Strummer, Johnny Cash, and my grandfather, all died seemingly at once. It was kind of a jarring experience that still feels like a kick in the balls. Now, having said all of that, if anyone has an extra one of Shepard Fairey's Joe Strummer portrait... feel free to message me and I'll send you my shipping address. Anyone who went through the period of time when punks were hunted for sport can relate to The Guns of Brixton, and the phrase "feel like a soldier, look like a thief".
