Praise for The Rise and Fall of the Clash
‘The whole story, warts 'n' all, told by those who knew them, those who were there and an on-form Jonesy recalling the eye of the most tumultuous hurricane ever to hit rock 'n' roll. An engrossing labour of love which does them proud.’
Kris Needs (author of Joe Strummer and the Legend of the Clash and The Scream: the Music, Myths and Misbehaviour of Primal Scream).
‘The Rise and Fall of the Clash explores the evolution of the punk icons, from their early days … to their downward spiral’.
Rolling Stone Magazine
‘The Rise and Fall of the Clash is a head-first plunge into conflict and chaos.’
The Boston Globe
‘At times hilariously funny, The Rise and Fall of the Clash can also be heartrendingly sad…Garcia also scrupulously examines the role played in the Clash’s last phase by the return of manager Bernard Rhodes’
Chris Salewicz (biographer of Joe Strummer, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Bob Marley, Jimmy Hendrix, Jim Morrison et al.)
‘If you're looking for a definitive answer to the question “Whatever happened to The Clash?” then read this book!...It may, indeed, be “only rock'n'roll” but the human tragedy at the heart of this account is no less poignant because of it.’
Mike Laye, ‘official’ Clash photographer
