Oh You’ve Got Blue Eyes, Oh You’ve Got Green Eyes, Oh You’ve Got Grey Eyes
It feels like school picture day at work. Everyone dressed up (not to the nines, though – more like to the six, six-and-a-halfs).
So it appears that a Clash reunion may be in the offing. Mick Jones joined Joe Strummer onstage at a gig last week and they ran through some Clash tunes. There’s talk they’ll be reuniting for a one-off show at their induction in the Rock’N’Roll Hall Of Fame next year. I’ll be right pleased if it stops there, though. With very few exceptions, bands that reunite after being split for so long always disappoint. And even if they pick up where they left off almost 20 years ago, that’d still be ‘Combat Rock’. And no one needs that.
Going to try and meet up with Joey tonight before his show at the B-Side. They’re going on a little late for my liking, but I need to pick up some CDs from him.
