Joe Strummer, forefront of punk music and forefront of bolo tie style

Strummer 3 1

Joe Strummer, co-founder and lead vocalist of The Clash pushed the boundaries of music throughout his career. As much as he was known for his ability to blend musical styles, he did the same is his fashion sense. Throughout his career he could be seen with a bolo tie to compliment his clothing choices.

And his work with The Clash, The Mescaleros, and solo projects never goes out of style. Today when ever we see a young musical artist wearing a bolo tie we’re reminded of Joe and the path he blazed.
