The Hot Press Newsdesk, 21 Aug 2012
John Graham Mellor, better known by his stage name Joe Strummer, sadly died as the result of a congenital heart defect on December 22, 2002 at the age of just 50.
The Clash singer was a true tour de force, as our man Stuart Clark found out when he met the legendary frontman in 1999. Check out the interview (which involves a well-inebriated Clark stumbling off Strummer's tour bus at 4am - yes really), here. Joe - we salute you! Happy birthday.
