Joe Strummer, The Clash, 1981 by David Corio

from 750.00

Soho recording studio, London

(May 17, 1981)

This is Joe in a recording studio in Soho where he was producing The Little Roosters ‘I Need A Witness’. He was taking a short break from working with The Clash at the time. I was slightly nervous meeting someone who was such an icon of the punk scene but he was extremely laid-back and friendly though he was obviously very occupied.
