Big Audio Dynamite played a great show at Roseland tonight. I hadn't seen BAD in about 20 years and they were in fine form. It was great in particular to see front man Mick Jones. He is a fine guitarist. Watching him made me think of all those great riffs he did on those early Clash (his first and better known band) that rip through you like a buzzsaw.
This was pretty much the original line up of BAD which included famed film maker Don Letts (Third World Cop). They performed many of my favorites including E=MC2, Bottom Line, and Rush.

How time goes by. I realized that is was just 30 years ago that I saw Mick and his mates in the Clash perform just a few blocks from Roseland at Bonds. They played over two weeks of shows at Bonds which was unheard of. That Clash on Broadway.

Great Show Mick .

I apologize to whatever band member this is, but I just can't stop myself:

Also, who would have predicted in '79 that Mick Jones and Donald Fagen's looks (if not their music) would converge so neatly?
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

That's Don Letts. Famed filmaker and colaberator with all things Clash. He directed the Jamaican thriller "Third World Cop."
