In Memory Of A Genuine Artist… JOE STRUMMER

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

22 December 2019

JOE STRUMMER died, only 50, on 22 December 2002, 17 years ago today. He was a genuine artist. A tremendously gifted and committed musician and a social human
being with his heart and soul and mouth on the right place.

I chose his most gripping Bob Marley cover of ‘REDEMPTION SONG‘ to commemorate
the passing of this legend because if he had still been alive today Strummer would have definitely protested with razor-sharp words and challenging music against the dramatic loss of human solidarity and the rise of dangerous, narcissistic political leaders as we experience for some years now. His honest and outspoken voice is sadly missed. Rest
in peace, rest in freedom…
