3.0 out of 5 stars Good as far as it goes, 30 Jan. 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: The Clash: Westway To The World [DVD] (DVD)
The interview footage is great and gives a great insight into the different personalities of the four main characters in the Clash story.
But...
I would have loved to have seen more live footage. Instead, we have to make do with merely seconds of each track - barely enough to get an idea of what is going on. Bit odd that, seeing as we are talking about a band who were so well known for their powerful live shows.
Also, once we get to the point where Mick Jones has been sacked, the story ends. Would have been nice to get the full band to comment on the Cut The Crap album - especially Jones and Headon, who had by then been sacked. To miss this embarrassing ending to an otherwise great career smacks of revisionism.
Still, interesting viewing, especially for those of us too young to fully appreciate it at the time, but for a fuller story, read the book "Passion Is A Fashion: The Story of The Clash"

Almost finished the excellent book by Pat Gilbey that is referred to above, can highly recommend it for anyone who were aware of the clash by their popularity and notoriety but who now have a thirst to know some facts (based on many interviews with band members and those closest to them) about a fading (sadly) national treasure.
