Shout-out from across the pond!

Many, many thanks to Tim Merrick for the kind words!

"Great article comparing Joe Strummer making a go of it with the 101′ers to becoming an author: Its no shock to most of you (I’d assume) that I enjoy writing and I’m perfectly keen to try and make a full time profession of it so I found extra reverberation in this piece which compares Joe’s early days trying to make inroads with his squat based band with the effort and resilience it takes as a writer on the endless path of seeking readers or even the holy grail of publication. Music much like writing is easier to get started in and ‘out there’ than it was 30 years ago but finding loyal readers or motivated listeners is another battle entirely."
