While there is no shortage of notable musicians in The Good, the Bad and the Queen, few are as legendary as Clash bassist Paul Simonon. The famous musician, who adorns one of the most famous album covers of all time recently participated in a fan-run interview via the website of his current project.
Besides talking about his new band and their album, The Good, The Bad and The Queen, Paul discusses the influence of the Clash in his work, his art and much more. Unfortunately, he also rules out performing any Clash songs as he tours with the band:
[Playing "Guns of Brixton"] was a moment of madness. We realised it was unnecessary really… or we should have done a Blur song, then one of Tony's and one of Simon's. We just knew straight away, that we didn't have to do that, we should just stick to our own songs. It was a one-off, and we won't do any more covers in future.

On a related note, the band's album was the first DRM-free recording from EMI Group and is available in 256kbps AAC with no restrictions now.
