The Strange Case of Dr Terry and Mr Chimes by Terry Chimes

The Strange Case of Dr Terry and Mr Chimes is an autobiography with a difference. It covers the life of a man who made a successful transition from the original drummer of The Clash (he left the band in 1977 only to be asked back in 1982) and a succession of punk and heavy metal rock bands (Generation X, Hanoi Rocks and Black Sabbath) to a chiropractor offering kind words of wisdom and compassion to the sick.

Told with humour and empathy, we learn about Terry’s childhood, about how he got into the world of rock and roll and about the early years of The Clash. Terry tells of why he left the band in the first place and the events that led him to re-join the band in 1982. The book includes dozens of true stories ranging from wild antics on the road with a touring rock band to the challenges of carving out an entirely new career.

This is an amazing story, had to read it in one sitting. I wasn't a punk fan, did recognize some musicians and song titles. The book is so well written and so interesting. My coworkers and I pass on titles of books that are a must read, this is going at the top of the list.

This book is a very interesting autobiography that hits close to home, as I am a chiropractor, and close to his age, and a Clash fan. Follows Dr Chimes's life story to date, in a casual writing style. A quick, easy read.
