Overview

The Clash by The Clash, Mick Jones, Paul Simonon, Clash, The

The unique story of the Clash, by the Clash. The Clash were a band like no other. Pioneers of British punk rock, their incendiary gigs, intelligent songwriting, definitive style and passionate idealism caught the spirit of the times and made them a worldwide phenomenon. Rolling Stone magazine declared London Calling one of the greatest albums of all time, their autobiographical documentary Westway to the World won a Grammy, and their music lives on, influencing emerging bands and exciting new audiences today.


This is the first official book to be created by the band. With unprecedented access to the Clash archive, this landmark publication brings together previously unseen material—including tour posters, artwork, and photos of the band at home, on stage, in the studio and on the road—with each member telling it like it was, in their own words.


Trendsetters, icons, revolutionaries: their story is steeped in mythology. Many people have an opinion about what made them who they were - this book gives the chance to read the full story, from all four band members themselves.

¿Huge book of photos and memorabilia¿ 4 stars
¿Who is The Clash?¿ That was my first thought when picking up this book. They are a bit before my time, yet this book is still interesting.
There are plenty of posed photos. Better yet, there are many candid photos. Some show them in concert. Some show them behind the scenes. Most of all, it has each of their takes on certain points in their fame. If you are a Clash junky, put this on your Christmas list.
