    Firstly if you have read a few books on the Clash all ready, like me, then you do not really need to read this, but it's good to go back and to revisit it all again. If you have never read a book about the Clash, then this book is great. Great detail of the times, the feelings and perspectives going around from before and the start of the Clash, every single, every album, every country visited. The falling in's and the falling out's of the Clash and the path that Mick Jones took after the Clash Firstly if you have read a few books on the Clash all ready, like me, then you do not really need to read this, but it's good to go back and to revisit it all again.

Great detail of the times, the feelings and perspectives going around from before and the start of the Clash, every single, every album, every country visited. The falling in's and the falling out's of the Clash and the path that Mick Jones took after the Clash as well. It still amazes me how actually fast the journey was and how productive the Clash where as a band and individually as well. A working class, working hard band and a World with no Clash would have been a very boring World indeed.
