I have played 3 Strummerville events now and I love doing it and will always do it if they ask me. Last time I played in Hastings for them and I was so excited to meet Ray Gange, he is the star of The Clash film Rude Boy! I used to watch that film nearly every day when I was a teenager, I think he was surprised at how excited I was to see him! Anyway.. this time I got to meet Johnny Green!! He used to be The Clash's tour manager! I recognise him from Rude Boy too! His son and a guy called Jamie run Strummerville! I think Johnny Green was equally surprised at how excited I was to see him! One of Joe Strummers daughter was there too! I wasn't sure whether she was Jazz or Lola but I saw her in the toilets and then her band played after mine! The gig went really well! It was quite busy and I had loads of excellent feedback! I am so sorry that I have sold out of CD's but I shouldn't really have sold them anyway cause Strummerville is a charity and so it would have been better to put their money to them!
The headliners were Kitty, Daisy and Lewis! I didn't get to meet them but my friends The Ceazers have played with them and my trombone player knows they're trombone player!! I hope I get asked to play for them again! RIP Joe Strummer!!
