Topol was trained playing the piano from a young age and introduced to the Soviet intellectual and artistic resistance while still being a child. He made his public debut at age 12, at the first performance of the Plastic People of the Universe's Passion Play - in front of Václav Havel.

He is also a (lyrics) writer. His song Žiletky (Razor-blades) inspired a movie of the same name, where he played lead role.
