That group had always resisted a reunion, but Jones isn't using his post-Clash band Big Audio Dynamite, which never achieved either the critical successes or lasting mythology of the Clash, to cash in on past glories.
"If I were you," Jones said when asked if B.A.D. would ever tackle maybe one or two Clash songs, "I would not expect that to happen, no."
