Seasick Steve - Seasick Steve Pays Tribute To Joe Strummer At Festival

Veteran blues singer Seasick Steve paid tribute to Joe Strummer during his set at a U.K. festival in honour of the late The Clash frontman on Friday (17Aug12).
The weekend (17-19Aug12) Strummer of Love event, to mark the 60th birthday of Strummer and the 10th anniversary of his death, launched in Somerset, England, and Seasick Steve was among the performers on the first day of festivities.
He performed a string of his hits and took time out from his show to praise Strummer.
He told the crowd, "I bought my first Clash record many years ago. Years before some of you were born. I heartily respect the man's belief and vision. I gotta say it's a real honour and privilege to headline the opening night of Strummer of Love. Thank you Joe!"
Frank Turner, Billy Bragg and rockers Reverend and the Makers were also among Friday's performers.
