Format: Hardcover
This book is amazing. Great photographs, and having the band telling their story is fantastic. Despite being assembled years after Joe Strummer's death, he is a dominant voice in the book. I would compare the style of the book to The Beatles Anthology book, although unlike The Beatles book, The Clash tell their story album by album and tour by tour as opposed to year by year.

You'll love the pictures and the stories. You'll start out flipping through it, and then get sucked in and start reading. This book is sure to become a classic.

By the way, the book is HUGE and HEAVY, and beautifully assembled. If you are a Clash fan, you definitely want this.

This is the book. Reading the book. Reliving the whole Clash Time. WOW
I mean, carry this book under your arm. If you were not there-now you can be----with this book. I was there and this book made me want to run around Hollywood. Go to London. Spend time in New York. I was reminded how much the music and lyrics of The Clash described the times and places that we lived. Those were the days. This was the group. This was the music. These are the memories and all in one book. This was the group filled with matter. This mattered the group. This book describes the only group that mattered. Who matters anyway?

This is a wonderful book, full of commentary by the Clash themselves about all aspects of their career 1976-1985. fantastic pictures, full set lists of all their tours, complete discography etc. If you are a fan of the band you cannot be without this. I go back to it again and again, particularly when listening to Clash albums. The definitive history of one of the greatest bands of all time.

A fast read, not as many road stories as I would have expected from a band that toured as much as The Clash did. If you're looking for a soap opera of rock and roll this is not your book. A good insight into the stories behind the songs and history of The Clash. I liked how the format was geared toward compiling memories from all the band members regarding the times being described.

I got very lucky with this one, I was in downtown Chicago at a retail "giant' bookstore and happened to look at the clearence table on my way out the door and there it was, for $5.99. What a great read this is, the photos are also amazing. This books makes me wish that I had grew up in England to witness this explosion first hand instead of the US. If you are a fan of The Clash or just a music this should be a MUST read.

The Kindle version is underwhelming but it's good to hear the words of these visionary musicians from their own mouths. A lot of the interviews have been recycled and not a lot of new things can be construed from them if you're a real fan, but for people coming to this Clash for the first time it's well worth the read. I am sure if I had the actual book in my hands it would be a very different review.

i'll just say that i like the clash but i got this book as a present for my boyfriend who LOVES the clash... when he opened the present, he gasped. that's how cool he thought it was. it's also a lot bigger and has way more pictures than i thought. from the description on the site, it seemed like it would be a regular book. this is more of a book of photos with some essays. enjoy!

I have every Clash book, DVD, CD, Album, and I still couldn't wait to receive this book. They were the best band ever in my opinion and knowing that they will never be together again, makes this book all the more precious. This book is their words, so it's a more personal look at the band. The photos are great and I would recommend this book for anyone who wants to know the story of the Clash.
