Clash guitarist Mick Jones has become a 'guerrilla librarian'

Posted by

The Clash's lead guitarist Mick Jones has swapped the noisy world of punk rock for a quiet life as a librarian.

The lead guitarist, who was a prominent figure in the punk rock movement of the seventies and eighties, opened his Rock-n-Roll Public Library in London yesterday.

Based in an office near Portobello Road, west London, close to where Jones formed The Clash with Joe Stummer in 1976, the "guerrilla library" will include 10,000 items from the guitarist's private collection.
