All right, the game is simple: I post a picture, you tell me if it's Bruce Springsteen or Joe Strummer. It's tougher than you might think. I'll post a pic every once in awhile. Here's the first one:

Strummer he is playing simonon's bass at a guess during guns of Brixton as Simonon could never sing and play that song live.

Springsteen playing the bass? So no, of course it's Strummer. I never saw the Clash live, but I did see Joe once fronting the Pogues when they had kicked out MacGowan. They played one Clash song, London Calling. Great memory.

I'm curious to see where you were going with this, mostly because I don't foresee a bunch of TGA fans mistaking Strummer for Bruce.

Regardless, I'm pretty sure I was played Bruce while I was in the womb. I'm not mistaking "kinda looks like" for Bruce haha.

Strummer is far superior to Bruce in every way. Raoring 123 at the start of every live song doesn't make him great.

He's good obviously, but he has no patch on Joe.

haha my mom went to see both the clash and bruce springsteen while she was knocked up with me.

I just can't get into Bruce, whereas Joe is probably my favorite musician ever.

If we're doing who we prefer now...Bruce. And it's not even really close. No disrespect to Joe, but very little can approach '70s Bruce to me. Veeeeeeerrryy little.
