Today marks the 14th anniversary of Joe Strummer's death and in a year when at times i seem to have lost faith in humanity i am reminded of Joes phrase ' without people you're nothing'.
This is one of my favourite pics of Joe giving money to a homeless person in the New York snow. He would always say there is a story behind every person and i often think of how our own councils are treating the homeless and how harsh public perception sometimes is when these people all have stories - many abused since childhood, many physically and mentally ill, many ex war veterans, many addicts and many who have faced severe financial hardship.
RIP. Joe Strummer. #clash #joestrummer #homeless #expressandecho #expressandechoexeter #punk #theguardian #thetelegraph
