“MY FRIEND JOE STRUMMER WOULD ALWAYS SAY, [IN A COCKNEY ACCENT] “NO INPUT, NO OUTPUT, MAAAAN. WE’VE GOT TO GO SEE THIS BAND. BECAUSE IF WE DON’T, WE’RE NOT GOING TO MAKE ANYTHING OURSELVES.” WE WOULD CALL IT STRUMMER’S LAW. TURNING EACH OTHER ON TO STUFF HAS ALWAYS BEEN IMPORTANT TO ME. I KNOW A LITTLE ABOUT A LOT OF THINGS, AND I DON’T TAKE THAT TO BE A NEGATIVE. LIFE ISN’T THAT LONG, AND I DON’T WANT TO WANT TO SPEND IT LEARNING ABOUT ONE THING. I’M A WHORE. NO INPUT, NO OUTPUT… BABY.”
When I found the (above) answer Jim Jarmusch gave during a 2014 interview I had a bit of a HELL YES moment.
Who wants to be the best at one thing? Not me. Strummers Law forever - there are always too many things to learn about.
