The three surviving members of The Clash are set to reunite for a one-off radio event in Britain. Mick Jones, Paul Simonon and Topper Headon have agreed to sit down for a BBC Radio 6 Music show next month (Sep13). The trio will be interviewed by singer-turned-TV and radio personality Cerys Matthews in front of an audience of fans. The exclusive chat will be taped on 6 September (13) for broadcast later in the the month. Matthews announced The Clash get together during a segment on her BBC Radio 6 Music show on Sunday morning (18Aug13). In a press release, she adds, "Their music gave a generation a voice not just in music but in the choice of how they lived their everyday lives and it still sounds as great, as fresh and loaded with good intent as music can ever be." Fans' dreams of a full The Clash reunion were dashed in 2002 when frontman Joe Strummer died. Simonon and Jones have teamed up since as members of Damon Albarn's Gorillaz collective.
