As usual I tuned into the Grammys tonite to kind of monitor the show while i'm busy with other things, knowing more times than not there will be something worth watching. I was not disappointed when Elvis Costello & Bruce Springsteen broke into the Clash's "London Calling" as a tribute to the late Joe Strummer.

Yeah, but where was Mick Jones? It would've been cool to see him up there.

I agree. At first glance I thought Paul Simonon was playing bass, but alas, turned out to be the No Doubt bass player.

Rudie can't fail! You know what's really amazing about Strummer? One of the last things he did was contribute a song for the closing credits of "Black Hawk Down" (beautiful version of old Irish song "The Minstrel Boy"). This from the same guy who wrote "Working for The Clampdown".

I do not find this ironic. I think human beings are amazing, and the world is amazing, and Strummer was amazing. I am dazzled by the mystery of it all.

peace,
emspace.

Speaking of "The Clampdown", Sugarlight played it at Hale Hawaii last Saturday. First time I'd heard it in a while, and at my local tiki bar no less! Good call on the DJ's part, I must say...

Oh, that is cool! Clash and Tiki - why the hell not? They would have been popular as hell with hot-rodders, juvie-hall graduates and other misfits if they'd existed in the 50s...

I'm an old Clash head. Where I was growing up we couldn't get t-shirts for them or anything like that, so we just made 'em with felt markers. Looked good with our surplus fatigue pants and boots. I was such a misfit I SPIT-SHINED my boots! Used to drive the other kids crazy...

It was nice that the Clash got their due. Somewhere, Joe Stummer is sneering.

Also gotta give props (is that what the kids say these days?!) to that Cold Play performance. I dig that band.
