The Only Librarian That Matters?

Being part of some of the greatest bands in rock history would seem to be the coolest job in the world, but even those in such lofty positions aim even higher: librarian. Keith Richards acknowledged his librarian aspirations two years ago. But Mick Jones, formerly of the Clash, has actually taken up the task, opening the Rock & Roll Public Library. For now, it is only a temporary exhibit in a London's Subway Gallery, but Jones envisions something more long-lasting. "Now Mick is looking for a permanent home to open a library where people can borrow from his enormous collection of 'anything cool,'" reports Ben Bloom in the Hampstead and Highgate Express. Sabotage Times has lots of photos:
