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).

Jones, who now plays with Carbon/Silicon, joined the Staines rock band towards the end of the show at Koko, when he was introduced as Hard-Fi singer Richard Archer's "personal hero".

The band with Jones then played The Clash's classic single 'Should I Stay Or Should I Go'.

Finishing up the gig with their 2005 single 'Living For The Weekend', Hard-Fi invited Jones back on to play guitar with them.

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