The Clash never reformed because of The Sex Pistols

     According to a story in this week's NME Caroline Coon a former Manager and close friend of 
The Clash is now saying as soon as Joe Strummer plucked up the courage to reform the band, The Sex Pistols would reform, making him change his mind. 

  "On some level, Joe was too dependent on what the press thought about him. They always said that rock'n'roll was for the young, and that The Clash should never reform," she says. "And just when Joe would get his confidence together together and say, 'Fuck the press, we're going to get together again!', do you know what happened? The Sex Pistols would reform!"

She added: "It happened a number of times. Joe – insecure as he was – had quite a big ego, and he just couldn't reform The Clash on the tail of the Sex Pistols."
