Nicholas Bowen “Topper” Headon (born 30 May 1955, Bromley, Kent, England), known as ‘Topper’ (because of his resemblance to Mickey the Monkey from the Topper comic), is a British rock and roll drummer, best known for his membership in the punk rock band, The Clash.

Headon is commonly recognized with the best punk rock drummers of the late 1970s and early ’80s; critic Greg Prato writes, “producer Sandy Pearlman dubbed Headon ‘The Human Drum Machine,’ due to his impeccable timing and skills.”

    Topper Headon has a solo career? Wow. What's even more amazing is that he became a taxi driver after The Clash.
