Unfortunately we lost him tonight. Have the Clash on f*cking loud and proud for him wherever you are, I'm sure he can hear it! Would always talk about this place and the charcters and I'm sure I met one or two before Hard-Fi and Big Audio Dynamite gigs with him. Even waited an hour in Cologne to meet someone off here who no-showed on us! He outlasted Thatcher and that was all he wanted the day he was diagnosed, to see that b*tch in the ground before him!
Yep I met you and Rob in the boozer before the Big Audio Dynamite gig. You took some photos of us if memory serves. I'm really saddened to hear about Rob's passing and offer my condolences. I'll be playing The Ruts in his honour "just for the crack". R.I.P my brother.
That was a great afternoon. Meeting you (James (shaved head ) on the bus then getting off and heading in the wrong direction and bumping into Mick Jones. Then getting hassled by a crazy woman in the shopping centre. Then finally meeting Rob smoking his hash walking down the street. Getting hassled by a drunk guy in the boozer then the same guy at the gig pulling me backwards and ending up on the floor then the doorman throwing him out. Being picked up off the floor by a couple of B.A.D. fans and bouncing straight back into the action on my DM's.

Condolences and RIP Robert. Fuck, he was a hell of a guy. There aren't enough just truly genuine, excellent human beings in this world, and now we're down another one.

James and I just jumped off the bus walked across the road and the first person we see is Mick on his way to the Shepherd's Bush Empire. Mick was very sweet but I refused to give him my autograph.

that explains Rob and Murph's expressions:
PH: "Oi, wots all this then about an operation, Mark?"

James: * sheer disillusionment*

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Appreciate the love he had here!

I actually have quite a few pics of that night I believe, you three in the venue, outside the front and in the pub - not sure if you both have them? Happy to post them up here!
