So sad to learn that Joe Strummer died today. He was one of my heroes. And I just learned that he played the uke!

He had immersed himself in music since childhood, and his own musical career began when he started busking with a ukulele at Green Park tube station.

Tom Petty says Harrison gave him the gift of ukulele fever.

Petty tells LAUNCH that he credits Harrison with introducing him to the ukulele while they were making the first Traveling Wilburys album. "Yeah, he taught me to play and gave me a ukulele years ago. And, of course, we were close friends for a lot of years, and we did a lot of ukulele playing. It was kinda fun. They're really fun little things, which I, I never would've known if it weren't for George. I'm still grateful that he taught me how to play it, he says.
