Today would have been Joe Strummer's 61st Birthday. Born John Mellor, Strummer reinvented himself from a private-schooled British youth to the iconic frontman of The Clash.
Strummer died of an undiagnosed congenital heart defect in 2002. The Clash were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame the following year.
To celebrate the band's legacy, this month their first 5 albums are being remastered and reissued in a box set called Sound System. Check out more details here.
