Mick Jones, Strummer’s former bandmate in the Clash, was among guests at the event at London’s White Cube Gallery on Thursday night to mark the release of “Streetcore.”
Strummer’s widow, Lucy, helped launch the Strummerville charity, which aims to help youth groups, organizations and individuals buy instruments and studio and rehearsal time.
Strummer died Dec. 22 after a heart attack. He was 50.
