Banged Up: The Most Notorious Rock Star Arrests
2. The Clash
In May 1980, at a gig in Hamburg, Joe Strummer was arrested for hitting an audience member with his guitar. But that wasn't The Last Gang In Town's misdemeanour. In 1977, Strummer was arrested with drummer Topper Headon for spray painting "The Clash" on a hotel wall! But more recently, in 2011, bassist Paul Simonon (also of The Good, The Bad & The Queen) was arrested for sneaking on board a Greenpeace ship and storming an oil rig with a group of other activists. Right on!
