About Jail Guitar Doors USA
In 1978, The Clash released the song, "Jail Guitar Doors." The song tells the story of the imprisonment of their fellow musician Wayne Kramer. In 2007, to honor the life of Clash founder, Joe Strummer, Billy Bragg launches an initiative in England to provide musical equipment used to rehabilitate inmates serving time in Her Majestys Prisons in the United Kingdom. His initiative is named for that very same song, Jail Guitar Doors. In 2009, Wayne Kramer partners with Billy Bragg to found Jail Guitar Doors USA. Together, their combined effort continues the mission for prisoners in America.
