Lucinda Mellor: The daughter of an aristocrat who married punk royalty, Joe Strummer and her continuing struggle to come to terms with his sudden death in 2002

 

Things were on the up and up for Joe Strummer in late 2002. He had started work on a new album. On November 15, he and his band The Mescaleros played a benefit show for the Fire Brigades Union’s striking firefighters at Acton Town Hall in West London. Strummer’s former bandmate in The Clash, Mick Jones, was in the audience and went onstage to play with Joe on Clash classics like Bankrobber, White Riot and London’s Burning.
