Birthdays this week: JOE STRUMMER, Vernon Reid & Robert Plant … I love Lennon & McCartney and I love Jagger & Richards….but Strummer & Jones were the sh*t! I love Joe Strummer maybe more than anyone else in rock music history. He was an original & a badass but sadly, he died at 50 of heart failure in 2002…another example of gone too soon. I’ll spin some tunes for Plant & Reid but we’ll get into some great Strummer stuff.
