Now I'M proud to be the first to write a GOOD definition for Topper Headon.
Topper Headon was one of the best drummers of ALL TIME. Originally Nicky Headon, Topper was also nicknamed "The Human Drum Machine" because of his impeccable timing and skills.
Beat out "every other drummer in London" for the hotseat. He planned to originally stay with The Clash for just a while, but then he realized what a great band they were and stayed.
However, he got kicked out after "Combat Rock" (in which he wrote almost all of "Rock The Casbah") because of a heroin addiction.
He still remains a rock 'n roll and drumming LEGEND.
Topper Headon is my drumming hero.
Topper Headon was the drummer for The Clash. His real name is Nicky Headon. He had tried out for Mick
s band,the London S.S.,then something happened,and tada,he was in The Clash. He later got kicked out though because he had a drug addiction and was becoming unreliable. I believe he released a solo album too. He was really short,and also sometimes had to wear women's shoes,because his feet were so small. He also got married to his girlfriend Wendy,but they divorced.
