Mick, Joe and Paul all said that Topper was the glue that held the band together. Great drummer, and the most accomplished musician in the band. Kicked out because of his drug problem, but it was accepted it never affected his playing.
Joe kicked Topper and Mick out..... certainly wasn't his greatest of decisions.
I’d better own up. Nick is a mate. The reasons why his sacking happened wasn’t exactly for the reasons people think.
He did alright. Rock the Casbah was mainly his….the original lyrics he wrote for it were hopeless they were rewritten.
He got a good royalty points on it. Then Will Smith covered it. Kerrrching!!
