Alan Cross' long career as a music journalist, most notably as host of the show The Secret History of Rock serves him well as he offers up this concise history of The Clash. From their humble beginnings auditioning hundreds of drummers and nearly starving, to being one of the members of the "holy trinity of punk", along with The Sex Pistols and The Ramones, Cross' natural, engaging voice makes music history come alive. With just enough of both anecdote and the bigger picture, listeners will get to know the importance of The Clash.
Rock on: listen to another Alan Cross Guide.
