Clash founder Joe Strummer and his current band, the Mescaleros, have been in the United States before the terror attacks in the country and he talked of his experience at Ground Zero in New York City while the band played on the David Letterman show. Strummer said, “We went down to ground zero to took a look. I took in a lungful. The smell is quite strange. You’d never think anybody could conceive of something so terrible.” Orlandosentinel.com has since removed the article.
