Clash: The Documentary

I continue to enjoy the documentary channel. Last night they had a documentary about the clash featuring interviews with each member of the band. God did Topper look terrible! Live concert footage was interspersed with bits of each interview. They each had interesting things to say, but Joe Strummer's description of the breakup of the band stood out. I felt like I was listening to a eulagy for a former lover. The heartbreak obviously remained even after more than 10 years. The tragedy, and listening to Joe it was impossible to see it as anything else, was described by each band member as inevitable. They did what they did because of who they were, but the regret in their voices was palpable.

I don't want to alarm anyone, but this little exchange makes you sound like you're married.
