The Clash Would Have Never Reunited Says Jones

(Classic Rock) Mick Jones says the Clash would never have got back together even if frontman Joe Strummer hadn't died in 2002. But it's more important that the members were able to rekindle their friendships following the disintegration that took place from 1982 to 1986 including the guitarist's dismissal 30 years ago this month.

The Clash are poised to launch a 13-disc box set called Sound System, which Jones says will be their last word after he spent three years on the project.

With hindsight he believes the band would have benefitted from taking a break, rather than continuing on course until their frustrations got the better of them.

"We were just all fed up with each other," he admits. "The bigger it got, the more difficult it became. We battled through constant issues. When you're together all the time you're going to get fed up with people, especially without breaks. more on this story
