The Clash‘s Mick Jones has given his support to campaigns opting to help save London‘s 100 Club from closing.

The guitarist admitted that the London venue, which faces closure due to spiralling overhead costs, would be “greatly missed”.

“I’m sorry to hear it might be closing,” Jones told SpinnerMusic.co.uk. “It will be greatly missed if it closes. Someone should start a campaign to save it.”

A campaign, which has over 10,000 members, already exists on Facebook, with the guitarist also adding that he would help out if asked.

“If someone’s going to do something and I’m available then I’d love to help,” he explained. “You have to balance it with the fact that life changes, but I’d love to help.”

The basement venue on Oxford Street has seen performances from the likes of Oasis, David Bowie, Bob Dylan and Queens Of The Stone age. It was also the scene of one of the defining moments of the British punk movement, hosting a special two-day festival featuring the likes of the Sex Pistols and The Clash in September 1976.
