Blondie’s Clem Burke Joins Protection Racket Family


When Protection Racket received a message from Blondie’s Clem Burke asking them to, ‘call me, call me any, anytime’ they didn’t leave him ‘hanging on the telephone’! It turns out he had been ‘Dreaming’ of Protection Racket cases for his drum kit for a ‘Longtime’.

Clem, drummer and longstanding member of the Grammy award winning band Blondie, was recently included in Rolling Stones 100 Greatest Drummers Of All Time. Considered one of pops greatest icons, Blondie achieved commercial success with ‘Atomic’, ‘Heart Of Glass’, ‘Sunday Girl’ and many more. When not playing with the band, Clem has also played with the legendary Bob Dylan, Pete Townshend, Iggy Pop and Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics.

‘One way or another’ Protection Racket decided they were gonna be Clem’s number one choice for cases by making them magnificent.

Seeing Clem with all his new drum cases, Dean Bowdery, Protection Racket founder and CEO, said it was ‘A sight worth seeing’.
