'The Queen' admits to being a Clash fan
Helen Mirren has admitted she is a huge fan of The Clash on US television.

The actress, who won an Oscar for her role as The Queen, made the admission on the 'Late Night With Conan O'Brien' show when she bumped into guitarist Mick Jones.

She said: "I just had the thrill of my life. I just met Mick [Jones] backstage. I'm not very rock 'n' roll but it was very exciting."

Jones later performed 'Why Do Men Fight?' on the show with his band Carbon/Silicon.
