WITHOUT PEOPLE..WE'RE NOTHING
~ Joe Strummer ~
''We're all going to have to learn to live together and develop a greater tolerance and get rid off whatever our fathers gave us in the way of hatred between nations.'' ''Everyone has got to realise you can't hold onto the past if you want any future. Each second should lead to the next one.''
'Whether it's jazz or punk or anything else, you have to fight against the purists who want to narrow the definition. That's what kills music because it stifles it to death.''
''I will always believe in punk-rock, because it's about creating something for yourself. Part of it was: 'Stop being a sap! Lift your head up and see what is really going on in the political, social and religious situations, and try and see through all the smoke screens.'' (July 2002)
About the continuing globalization of the world: ''We can at least be optimistic in (that) it forces the renegades and the underground to get it together. The worse s--t gets, the more interesting the underground becomes. So I'm always quite hopeful. I believe in human beings. Human beings won't let this happen. We won't all end up robots working for McGiant Corp or whatever. It can't happen.'' (July 2002)
''To write good songs you have to be somewhere between a genius and a village idiot.''
''People have told me songs I've written have changed their life. That's remarkable. That keeps your faith.''
''We were brought up to believe that science and engineering were going to make the world a better place. Now we've got pollution and everything and it seems we've come to a halt. But I think we've got to retain some faith in believing tomorrow will be better than today.''
''If I had five million pounds I'd start a radio station because something needs to be done. It would be nice to turn on the radio and hear something that didn't make you feel like smashing up the kitchen and strangling the cat.''
ποσο καλα θα ηταν να υπηρχαν καλλιτεχνες σημερα
με αποψη,που μετραει.
ανθρωποι που εχουν να σου πουνε κατι!
αυτοι που ξερουν και αγαπησανε αυτο το συγκροτημα,
καταλαβαινουν πολυ καλα τι θελω ναπω..
Η κληρονομια που αφησες πισω σου ειναι τεραστια.
το καταλαβαινουμε ολοι οι φαν σου καθε μερα,καθε χρονο που περναει..
Πιστευες στον ανθρωπο,πιστευες στην παγκοσμια μουσικη..
εγω πιστευω σε εσενα..
REST IN PEACE JOE STRUMMER..
YOU WILL NEVER BE MISSED..
Dedicated to my friend kostas.
