“Joe Strummer, The Inestimable”

 

... the photo shoot was from September 15, 1999, on the occasion of the promo of Strummer’s album "Rock Art and the X-ray Style" with The Mescaleros.

The photo of Joe Strummer is from 1985

The Big Audio Dynamite is from 1984.

So Mick Jones lived here in 1985...

 

There is a touching moment near the end of The Rise and Fall of The Clash. In a denoucement worthy of a romantic comedy, Strummer, having suddenly realized he was mistaken to trust Rhodes and that Mick Jones had been his true and honest mate all along, rushes to Jones’s house and finds his former bandmate waiting for a cab to the airport. They share a spliff, Strummer jumps in Jones’s cab, and together they fly to Nassau. Jones wouldn’t come back into the Clash, because he’d formed Big Audio Dynamite, but Strummer and Jones would collaborate on BAD’s second album No. 10, Upping St.

20 Soho Square, London...

 

 

Why was Joe Strummer outside 20, Soho Square on the 16th January 1981?

Suggestion is that Joe was visiting the CBS offices at 17-19 Soho Square to discuss the release of 'Hitsville' from the Sandinista LP {released on the 12th December 1980}
