“Johnny loved the Clash,” says Linda. “He thought they were the second-best punk band of all-time, behind the Ramones. Joe Strummer and Johnny were good friends. In fact, I just saw Lucinda, Joe’s widow, the other day. We still keep in touch.” Back in the old days, “Johnny thought punk was gonna take over and the Ramones, the Clash, and the Sex Pistols were gonna be as big as the Beatles and the Stones. It just so happens that punk wasn’t commercial, which only made it cooler.”
Imagina a conversa desses caras que, sim, tiveram bandas tão grandes quanto Paul McCartney e Mick Jagger.
