Clash legend celebrated seven years after his death
A hand-drawn Christmas card by Joe Strummer is to go on sale tomorrow (December 22), seven years to the day since the Clash frontman passed away.
The illustration, which you can see on the right of the screen, was the last card Strummer designed before his death, and was designed to be given to friends and family personally.
As well as the card, which is on sale at Strummerville.com (the charity set up after Strummer‘s death), a tribute album is also being released tomorrow showcasing new UK acts.
