It was great to see Paul’s bass up close. It’s an iconic object for sure, but also it was good to see and photograph it in detail as I’m building a replica at the moment. Intact though haha.

 

Build thread urgently required, unless you already have one.

So what is the low down on Norm playing on London Calling? 

I dunno about Norman on London calling, but I believe Topper Headon played bass on Rock the casbah.

He didn’t. NWR played on ‘The Magnificent Seven’ from ‘Sandinista’ on sessions in NY. Simonon was filming in Canada, I believe with Ray Winstone, for a movie. It’s likely he probably played on other tracks from the same sessions whilst he was there. 
 

As for ‘Rock The Casbah’, Topper wrote all the music, played drums, bass and piano. Strummer later added lyrics and Mick Jones added the guitar stabs. Ironic that by the time Topper’s tune was released as a single he’d been fired from The Clash and Terry Chimes took his place in the promo video.
