Whether it’s punk rock or reggae, Don Letts has lived his life through music … and has the film footage to prove it. He’ll be in the Guardian office on Tuesday 1 August from 3pm UK time to answer all your questions
Nobody could dispute Don Letts’ punk credentials. He’s made videos for Public Image Ltd and the Clash, managed the Slits, DJ’d at London’s Roxy Club and played in Big Audio Dynamite with Mick Jones. It was Letts who put together The Punk Rock Movie in 1978 from his own Super 8 footage of the burgeoning scene, and Letts who returned to the story in 2000 for the Grammy-winning The Clash: Westway to the World.
But that’s just one side of his character. The Londoner has been involved in fashion and films, and currently DJs across the world. He also hosts Don Letts’ Culture Clash radio on BBC 6 Music, and has partnered with the restaurant chain Turtle Bay for The 45 Podcast, which aims to deliver reggae’s underground sounds to diners.
