It has been generally good so far. It's great all these people are showing their love for Joe and the Clash.

Dhani Harrison seems a genuine person, and gave a hint at more Joe music to come on Dark Horse records. 002 would be good.

Thoroughly enjoyed it. Interrupters were best but thought that was a damn fine Straight to Hell too. Some iffy ones but no howlers or stinkers i felt.

Wonder what Joe was singing in that clip they showed of him at the beach. Something like "down by the river/chill chill chill", sounded good whatever it was.

Well I thought that was excellent. Well done Jesse Malin for putting it together.

That was great. Always love to see other musicians/bands showing their love for the ones that influenced them. Always great to hear some stories about Joe as well

Just talking about Joe. He does seem to be a nice fella, and overcame his heroin problem just as well as Topper it seems.

Ray did look in pretty decent shape. Loved hearing the stories. Some of em went on a bit but that was alright, could have listened all night. Steve Buschemi was great, as you'd expect. And Sara and her 9 hours of music!
