Happy Birthday Joe

On this day 1952 in the capitol of Turkey, the stars aligned to bring the world a rare breed of musical talent, political consciousness, style and good humor. I am speaking of Clash frontman, Joe Strummer. We miss you Joe!

Public Radio Exchange has re-released a radio show Strummer did in his later years for the BBC. Not only was he an outstanding musician, he was a true music efficiendo. You get a sense of his international upbringing with his love of world music.

My best college buddy came to visit last week. We spent the week trying to have the ultimate west coast experience. No one can say we didn't try. Beach, palm trees, iced coffee, flea market, Sunset strip and shopping. I miss her already.

Side note: we got kicked out of Sony Pictures and banned forever.
