If Bruce Is Good Enoough for Strummer!!
From the Guardian:
"In the mid-90s, Strummer was asked for his thoughts on Springsteen for a TV project. The answer came in the form of the fax revealed here: "Bruce is great ... if you don't agree with that, you're a pretentious Martian from Venus"! The respect was mutual; Springsteen was quick to pay tribute when Strummer died in December 2002 , describing him as "one of the greatest rockers of all time" .
Whats is nice about the wee note is that the block printing Joe uses is exactly the same as the lyric insert on London Calling.
