Born John Graham Mellor on August 21, 1952 in Turkey.

He gave himself the name Joe Strummer because although he was left handed, he learned to play guitar on a right handed guitar, therefor he could only do the strumming chords.

Pre-1977, Joe was in bands such as The Vultures and The 101ers.

However, he is best known for his work in the punk rock band, The Clash. He wrote most of the lyrics, and shared vocal duties with co-band member Mick Jones. The Clash lasted from 1977 to 1985. They released several great records, most notably "London Calling".

In 1995, Joe signed onto Hellcat records with his group, Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros.

Joe died on December 22, 2002 of heart complications.

In my opinion Joe is one of the greatest musicians of all-time, and was a really great guy. RIP Joe

The Fact that I am the first person to write a definition for Joe Strummer is crying shame. Frontman of the greatest punk band ever to play, The Clash, and later the lead singer of Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros, Joe Strummer, while widely regarded all over the world is still amazingly underrated. More influentual than John Lennon or any other musician, Joe Strummer is quite simply "God."
