Joe Strummer is sporting a new look on East 7th Street



Several readers alerted us to the Joe Strummer mural outside Niagara on East Seventh Street and Avenue A … where Dr. Revolt has touched up his mural … giving Joe Strummer a decidedly more Joe Strummer look, complete with new sunglasses, leather jacket, hairstyle...

Much improved! I dig it a ton more than the young Andrew Dice Clay that sat in Joe's place for so long. Thanks for keeping the seat warm, Dice Man.

Great, now how 'bout graffiti-proof, sticker-proof fiberglass over the mural so no one can deface it?

Maybe it is time once more for a Gringo Aka John Spacely wall after all we all knew him
