Saw the “Future is Unwritten” about punk rock legend Joe Strummer. He was such a kind and thoughtful gentleman - - The Clash were the only band I ever met whom you could invite to your party after the concert and they would probably come! I remember partying with them at the Montgomery cafĂ©.
In the film he has a great quote that also exemplified my take on the punk / alt scene of the 80’s - - might surprise some of you…. “Punk rock means exemplary manners to your fellow man.” “Greed isn’t going anywhere. Without people you are nothing... that is my spiel.” - Joe Strummer

That is s a photo of me (with hair) when I first met Joe at the Kerrisdale Arena in the 80's. Great memories.
