Alright, now on to the music. Today our focus is The Clash. How many of you thought this was going to be another Bobby Darin post?
I have been a Clash fan since I was 12 years old and they've had such an impact on my life. I remember my dad put on the London Calling album one night and that was it, I was hooked. I had the desire to learn the drum at 13 because I idolized (still do) Topper Headon. Do not get me started on the man because I will not stop, there are so many great things to be said about him. Their songs make you think and now I am a more critical listener, not just with music but in conversation too.
Now, if you've never heard any music by The Clash then you simply must. I'll give you some direction. If you want the most bang for your buck then I would go with either London Calling or Sandinista, the former a double album and the latter a triple. The great thing about Sandinsita is there's all different genres of music on it and they're all done well. That's another great thing about The Clash, the versatility!
