Joe Strummer & The Mescaleros ~ "Johnny Appleseed"
Remembering John Graham Mellor (21 August 1952 – 22 December 2002) In the mid-to-late 1990s, Strummer gathered top-flight musicians into a backing band he called The Mescaleros. Strummer and the band signed with Mercury Records, and issued their first album in 1999, which was co-written with Antony Genn, called Rock Art and the X-Ray Style. A tour of England, Europe, and North America soon followed; sets included several Clash fan favorites. Here we see Joe and the Mescaleros live on Late Nite with Letterman October 3, 2001.
