'Let Fury Have the Hour': The Passionate Politics of Joe Strummer

Antonino D'Ambrosio

Abstract


Joe Strummer, the pioneering punk rock musician, former front man of the Clash, and political activist, died of a rare heart condition at his home in Somerset, Broomfield, England at the age of fifty on December 22, 2002. Barely twenty-five years earlier the Clash burst onto the London music scene to become one of the great rebel rock bands of all time—fusing a melange of musical styles, with riotous live performances, and left-wing political activism, that inspires many to this day.
