Is that not a poignant picture?
Joe Strummer and Johnny Cash would both be dead within two years of this photo being taken.
I miss them both.
Neither of them deserved to die before John Lydon.

They were both amazing musicians and amazing men, Jen. Wish I had known them.

Too true, I share your view.
I was lucky enough to see Joe Strummer perform once in Toronto with The Pogues, I had no idea how lucky I was then. (in the 80's)

You saw Joe Strummer with the Pogues? You are so lucky, Jacquie! And Shane McGowan from the Pogues - there's another musician who is bucking the odds just by being alive.

Have you seen the film "Let's Rock Again"? It's Dick Rude's documentary of Joe Strummer's last tour - amazing.
