London calling 40 years!

Back in 2010 I met Mick Jones in Strummerville,  it was a real highlight for me even though I made a fool of myself telling him several times how much I loved The Clash.

Yeah I heard a bit of that. He just keeps to himself down in Dover by the sounds of it, and no longer plays drums so I'm unlikely make the full set at Glastonbury!

Back in the day there used to be a brilliant crusty traveller type bar that only sold spirits and had all night live music. It was called The Kazbar and was run by a dear friend of ours called Kaz. It was at the field entrance just below the Greenpeace Field.

In '95 we were Green Kids crew and parked just behind The Kazbar. One night Joe Strummer turned up, got on the tarp covered stage with a guitar and played Rock The Kazbar.  Kaz (actuall called Karen) was SO chuffed as I'm sure that you can imagine.

The Kazbar was a proper old school site type bar, not officially sanctioned but tolerated as it kept many of the ne'er-do-wells in one place away from the normal people. It was ace, Tragic Roundabout and Tofu Love Frogs were house bands.

 

Sadly Kaz died last night.

Genuine legend, raise a glass to her.
