Mick Jones and London's Burning

Mick Jones's old apartment, inspiration for London's Burning.


Guitarist and founder of punk rock legends The Clash, Mick Jones lived in a tower block on the 18th floor of this council high rise. - his gran's apartment. He stayed here intermittently from 1973 to 1980.

It's obviously an inspiration for several Clash songs, including London's Burning (references to the flat's views over the scenic Westway motorway).

Location: Wilmcote House, Warwick Estate
