Great eulogy for Joe Strummer

Great eulogy for Joe Strummer on Salon. Quotes from Greil Marcus, Lester Bangs, ("We were all waiting for a group to come along who at least went through the motions of GIVING A DAMN about SOMETHING," the critic Lester Bangs wrote 25 years ago. "Ergo, the Clash.") Also commentary on why he agreed let Jaguar use "London Calling" in an ad, and an incredible anecdote on how The Clash tried (unsuccessfully) to introduce their New York punk fans to rap in 1980.
