Raise a Toast to Saint Joe Strummer!!

After a ridiculously long absence from this blog, I return to give you a great one. This is a benefit show from the great Joe Strummer & his Mescaleros from 2002 supporting the cause of local firefighters. Not only does the show kick total ass, Joe was joined for the first and last time by former Clash-mate Mick Jones for the encores.

Truly a special show and a great sounding one from one of the most important artists of all time.
