Joe Strummer (born John Graham Mellor) was one of the most important figures of the Punk movement in England in the seventies and eighties. Best known for his position of lead singer for The Clash, he also went on to do other groups, including The Pogues, The Mescaleros, and others. He died at age fifty from heart issues.
