The Clash - Rock The Casbah

Imagine how The Clash drummer Topper Headon felt when he saw the video for "Rock The Casbah" after having been fired from the group some time prior to its release, and being responsible for writing and recording what would become their biggest hit single, seeing replacement drummer Terry Chimes (who had been the band's first drummer) sitting where he should have. Not a good feeling, I'm sure, but Headon's heroin addiction had led singer Joe Strummer to fire him in advance of the release of The Clash' final album, 1982's Combat Rock. A pity, and it soon spelled the end of the world's coolest ever rock band.

Watch and listen
