Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Remembering Joe Strummer

Joe Strummer, guitarist, songwriter and leader of the English political punk rock group The Clash, left us too soon at the age of 50 ten years ago today. Above, Strummer performed the apocalyptic "London Calling" with his post-Clash band, The Mescaleros, in Cologne, Germany, 1991. For more on Strummer's enduring influence, listen to NPR's report, "Joe Strummer's Life After Death," broadcast this past Thursday, and read the BBC's "Remembering Joe Strummer 10 Years On."
