The Chelsea Space in London is currently showing a collection of rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia from former Clash and Big Audio Dynamite guitarist, Mick Jones.

The exhibition includes paraphernalia from the bands he’s work with, as well as Jones’ archive of books, magazines, videos, toys and games which have influenced his life and work. The collection is usually stored at his West London recording studio and adjoining store, and the Chelsea Space has attempted to move as much of it as possible into the gallery for the exhibition. Also on show are customised stage clothes, instruments, flight cases, records, posters, boxes, photos etc. All in all a must see for rock fans.

The exhibition will continue until April 18. More info is here.

Alongside these images, the film below by Tony James gives a glimpse of some of the items on show…
