The Clash Talk 'Soundsystem,' Being Wilder Than The Kinks And Scaring The WhoYounger music fans may be confused when presented with Sound System, the new Clash box set.

Robbie Robertson On The Band: 'I Hoped We Would Have A Timeless Quality'The Band has had a profound impact on some of the most relevant bands of today, including Wilco, My Morning Jacket, Ray LaMontagne and a little combo called Mumford & Sons.
