Strummer's drummer Topper Headon also wrote and played most of the instruments on Rock The Casbah while he was waiting for the rest of the band to arrive! Pass the foil...

Strummer strummed
As well as being The Clash's lead vocalist, Joe Strummer also played rhythm guitar. However the man string maestro was Mick Jones, who also sang! ...Paul Simonon was a bit stringy too; cooly strumming his bass, and yes sang! Finally, as mentioned by a previous poster, Nicky "Topper" Headon bashed the skins with style & finesse. Arguably one of the most creative and inspirational bands of the era.

Joe Strummer's Drummer
Joe's drummer was the FANTASTICALLY TALENTED Topper Headon. Just listen to the London Calling album and you will see what I mean. Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten is a great film

I've searched everywhere looking for a definition of the word "wunts" and it doesn't appear to exist. Could you possibly enlighten me? Joe was a legend! I'm looking forward to seeing this one.
