Former The Clash star Mick Jones was so upset when he was kicked out of the band in 1983 he dyed his hair and donned a disguise so that fans wouldn’t stop him in the street.
The guitarist still lived in the same area of London as his ex-bandmates and the group’s most fervent fans. And rather than become a prisoner in his own home, he opted to hit the streets looking like an unshaven Michael Caine.
“I was in a state of shock that lasted for months,” he told Blender magazine. “I put Michael Caine glasses on, dyed my hair blond and grew a beard for a bit. We all lived in the same area and I didn’t want to see people.”
