what happened next
The Clash effectively imploded after the final Cut The Crap album by which time Jones had been sacked from the band. After The Clash, Jones went on to successfully form Big Audio Dynamite. Currently he is part of Carbon Silicon. Strummer formed and toured with The Mascaleros. Simonon went into art and came back into prominence in 2007 with The Good, The Bad and The Queen, a project also featuring Damon Albarn. Topper is believed to be living and playing in the Dover area. Joe Strummer died in 2002.

Jones and Headon reunited for the first time on stage in 25 years in January 2008 at a Carbon;Silicon gig (Jones' current band)
