Previously unseen Joe Strummer photos to feature in 10th anniversary calendar

The Clash frontman passed away in 2002

To commemorate 10 years since the death of Joe Strummer, who passed away age 50 in 2002, a calendar featuring previously unseen photos of the star and his handwritten notes will be made available.

Put together by the Strummerville charity and collective, the 2012 calendar will also feature quotes from the legendary punk figure.

“We are very excited to present this calendar as our first offering for Joe‘s 10th anniversary next year,” say Strummerville, who run a campfire and bandstand every year at Glastonbury Festival as a tribute to the musician. “It’s interesting how even ten years after Joe‘s passing some of his words of wisdom are more pertinent now than ever before and we hope that this is reflected in the calendar and that it will be celebrated by Strummer fans around the world.”
