About Joe Strummer in brief
Joe Strummer was the co-founder, lyricist, rhythm guitarist, and co-lead vocalist of punk rock band The Clash. Formed in 1976, the Clash’s second album Give ‘Em Enough Rope reached No. 2 on the UK charts. Strummer’s other career highlights included stints with the 101ers, Latino Rockabilly War, the Mescaleros, and the Pogues, as well as solo music. His work as a musician allowed him to explore other interests such as acting, scoring television shows and films, hosting radio shows, and as a radio host on the BBC Radio show London Calling. The Clash were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in January 2003. In his remembrance, Strummer’s friends and family established the Joe Strummer Foundation, a non-profit organisation which gives opportunities to musicians and support to projects around the world that create empowerment through music.
