Pictures of interest: Paul Simonon of The Clash with David Bowie
Seeing as its release week for The Next Day I decided to feature David Bowie in the first post of this series This is Paul Simonon - bassist of The Clash and David Bowie. This picture was taken in 1982, backstage after The Clash's performance as opening act for The Who at the Shea Stadium in New York. It was one of a few links shared between The Clash and David Bowie. My most favourite of these links has to be CBS telling The Clash that Bankrobber sounded like David Bowie backwards and as such they were dubious to release it as a single). But I digress, I just thought this picture was incredibly cool as it represents two iconic British artists.
