It seemed fitting to end the Playlist with some scenes from one of Joe's final ever gigs at Acton Hall in support of striking Firemen. (the final one would be 7 days later at the Liverpool Academy 22nd November 2002). Mick Jones was in the audience for the show and he jumped on stage and played on Bankrobber, White Riot and London's Burning.
