Hard to believe it has been 40 years

When you think of 40 years ago you certainly don’t think of 1977.  That was when life was literally happening all around us.  Being a year younger than The Consul I got to The Clash not with their first album but with the immortal “White Man in Hammersmith Palais” which to my mind you can never have too much of.  So, my first Clash album was actually Give ’em Enough Rope.  Of course the first time I heard Side 1 Track 1 of The Clash I was sold – just very hard to believe it was 40 years ago, and Joe is gone and we’re now in our mid 50’s.  Luckily we have the music to remind us of all the promise.  And yes I’d love to go 🙂
