im listening to lost in the supermarket and guns of brixton, my two favorite clash songs. joe strummer was one of the greatest musicians, even if i did not like the pogues or the mescaleros, they kept to their clash roots during their shows. the clash had an influence on so many bands, hopefully no one will forget that

Train not in Vain

LONDON, England (AP) -- Joe Strummer, lead singer of British punk band The Clash, has been honored with a train named for him.

Strummer, who died in 2002 at age 50, was remembered at a naming ceremony Saturday at a railway station in Bristol, southwest England.

The Strummer train, a diesel locomotive built in 1965, follows a 200-year-old tradition of British trains being named after famous people. It will be operated in England by Cotswold Rail company.

Strummer's influential punk band rose to fame in the 1970s with hits including "London Calling" and "Should I Stay or Should I Go?"

Originally born John Graham Mellor, Strummer died of a heart attack at his home in Somerset, southwest England, in December 2002.
