Strummer's Train Honour

Late CLASH singer JOE STRUMMER's name will be scrawled across a British train in recognition of his contribution to modern music.

The SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO rocker's moniker will adorn a Class 47 locomotive when it is unveiled during a special ceremony at Bristol, England's Temple Meads station on Saturday (12FEB05).

Strummer died in 2002 of an undiagnosed heart condition at his home. He was still writing and recording new songs with his band THE MESCALEROS at the time of his passing.
