Mick Jones

Michael Geoffrey "Mick" Jones (1955) is a British musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist, cofounder and songwriter for The Clash until his dismissal in 1983.
Afterwards, he formed the band Big Audio Dynamite with Don Letts. Jones has recently played with the group Carbon/Silicon along with Tony James and has toured the world as part of the Gorillaz live band. In late 2011, Jones collaborated with Pete Wylie and members of The Farm to form The Justice Tonight Band.
When he was 21, he and Paul Simonon were introduced to Joe Strummer by Bernie Rhodes (the self-proclaimed inventor of punk rock) in a squat in Shepherd's Bush. The band rehearsed in a former railway warehouse in Camden Town and The Clash was formed.
