Der er altid mere

Perspektiveret viden og flere nye detaljer trænger sig altid på. Dagens vinding omkring The Clash? Tromme-es Topper Headon led/lider af flyskræk, hvilket nok egentlig godt kan anes udfra dette billede fra lufthavnen i Wien…

Her ordene fra billedet på en The Clash-profil på Instagram:

Three quarters of The Clash looking cool ‘n’ composed at Vienna airport, 1981. ■ Unfortunately drummer ‘Topper’ suffered from aviaphobia, and his wan and sickly expression here seems to suggest that he was staring down the barrel of a long-haul flight. Rather uncharitably, this is something that Paul and Joe appear to find highly amusing! ■ That being said Topper’s torpor may also have been compacted by his increasingly frequent dalliances with ‘class A’ drugs; heroin in particular. This soon-to-be debilitating addiction would ultimately send Topper into a tailspin (pun intended), and after several poor live performances, sadly he would be dismissed.

3 tanker om “Der er altid mere”

  1. Forkert tråd, det er jeg klar over, men apropos Bowie og kritikken af ham i 80’erne, musikken er jeg ikke så bekendt med, men jeg bruger lige denne platform til at beære hans medvirken i Labyrinth… han burde have været i utallige film…unikt talent:-)

  2. Og David Bowie havde så stærk flyskræk i 70’erne, at han sejlede og/eller kørte tog mellem/over kontinenter. Ikke at man skulle tro en ægte starman havde flyskræk, men jo.
