Rollins Meets Cash Meets Clash

During our fall 2011 taping with Henry Rollins, he told an unbelievable story about a backstage encounter between himself, Joe Strummer of the Clash, and Johnny Cash. As if that image isn’t jaw-dropping enough, Tom Petty, mega-producer Rick Rubin, and June Carter popped in, too. The tale was, alas, too epic for our radio show’s time constraints…but it SCREAMS to be heard, so we’re posting it here as a web special. Enjoy! (Cue Henry, answering the question: “What’s the most memorable get-together you’ve been to?”)

    So great – my first dubbed punk tape a friend made for me in ’86 was London Calling on one side and My War on the other…Brian Fetterman sat on it.

    Now *that* is a cool tape, and a good friend. As for it being sat on, that’s Brian for you.
