Joe Strummer

Bruce Springsteen and Bob Weir lead the lineup for the special A Song For Joe: Celebrating The Life Of Joe Strummer event that will benefit Save Our Stages.

The special online event will be taking place this Friday, August 21 at 3:00pm ET (12:00pm PT and 8:00pm BST), which is the Clash legend's birthday.

The two hour event will stream for free with all donations benefiting Save Our Stages and will be hosted by Jesse Malin and will also feature never before seen live footage from Joe Strummer.

Other stars taking part include Josh Homme, The Strokes' Albert Hammond Jr., Brian Fallon, Butch Walker, Dropkick Murphys, Frank Turner, and more.

"To see so many musicians and artists come forward to honor Joe is really touching," says Joe's wife Lucinda Tait. "Community was always important to him. Whether it was playing music with friends, organizing all night campfires, or hijacking festivals, Joe was always focused on bringing people together. Even though we can't all be in the same room together, I cannot think of a better way for us all to feel united. Joe would have loved this."

"This tribute to Joe is not only a great way to honor him, but to also remind people how important his message is right now," adds Malin.
