Nicholas Bowen Headon, known as "Topper" due to his resemblance to Mickey the Monkey from the Topper comic, is a British drummer best known for his membership in the punk rock band The Clash. He is commonly recognised as the most inspirational and technically inventive punk rock drummer of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Greg Pato (Allmusic.com) stated that record producer Sandy Pearlman dubbed Headon as "The Human Drum Machine", due to his impeccable timing and drumming skills.
