Clash Legend Joins Hard-Fi Onstage In London

The Clash's legendary guitarist Mick Jones was a surprise special guest at Hard-Fi's Shockwaves NME Awards show in London last night (February 6).

The Shockwaves NME Awards Shows culminate with the Big Gig, headlined by Manic Street Preachers at London's O2 Arena on February 28.
