Joe Strummer will forever be known as the main voice of the Clash. He continues to live on as an icon of punk rock. But Joe had a very un-punk-rock-like hobby. He liked to jog. Legend has it that one day after rehearsal, Joe had everyone bus it over to Hyde Park where they jogged around a lake called the Serpentine.
While the rest of the band gave up and went back to the pub, Joe really got into it. In fact, Joe became quite a dedicated runner and workout freak. Joe went on to compete in a number of marathons. This makes his death of an undetected congenital heart defect even more tragic and ironic, doesn’t it?
