When I saw the title of the article, I immediately thought "I have an old friend who used to name the Clash this way..."
It was him, Christopher
The greatest legacy he leaves is that he made a generation of people think for themselves. He didnt quite manage to change the world but he changed the way people looked at it. It's a sad day - but what a life

Apparently from Class Rock #80 (from 2005). The Queen Adreena reference was the clue that it was not a current article.

I did enjoy this Paul quote: “I think the last show we played was probably in Greece at some festival and that was really great. We had three guitars by that point, so it gave me a bit more space in some ways. I’d been practicing break-dancing for some reason and in the middle of The Magnificent 7, I took the bass off and started spinning around. We were just so comfortable on stage by that point, it didn’t matter – it just mattered that people got a good show.”
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

:lol: Yes, Paul, it "was really great."

Couldn't break dance if his life depended on it. Really embarrassing.

No one over the age of 14 should break dance.

No one who wears pleather trousers of any age should break dance.
