Clash fans worldwide were hoping for a full-scale reunion at yesterday's Notting Hill screening of the Clash documentary, "West Way To The World," and they got what they hoped for… sort of.
Founding Clash members Joe Strummer, Mick Jones and Paul Simenon all showed up at the screening's after party, although the only artist to actually perform at the gig was former Pogue leader Shane McGowan, according to British publication "NME.
