Turning Rebellion into Money

JOE Strummer, the former singer and guitarist with punk band The Clash, left £1million.

Just-released documents have revealed that his estate was worth £986,229.

Anti-establishment songs may be more profitable than I previously thought. On the other hand some of the cash might have been transmitted via his family:

He was a diplomat’s son who was born in Turkey and had an upper-class upbringing – complete with private education.

Not that any of this prevents London Calling from being one of the best records released in the last thirty years.
