The Clash's Joe Strummer was found dead at his home in the west of England. He was 50.
I always thought London Calling was an insanely great bit of work. Full throttle punk-a-billy in "Brand New Cadillac," to the dub anthem "The Guns of Brixton" through the perfect guitar pop of "Train in Vain," just a relentlessly inventive work.
It is OK to feel very old today.
