Clash drummer now a chiropractor!

So, what do you do next after you've been in one of the most celebrated bands on the planet? Become a chiropractor, of course!

Terry Chimes, drummer with the Clash, played all of the biggest stadiums. He has had Bob Dylan, Jack Nicholson and Eddie Murphy coming backstage to pay him tribute. Rolling Stone magazine places his records in the top 10 of all time.

But now, Terry has become a chiropractor in Essex, England and his stage appearances are now limited to motivational seminars for doctors.

"I felt it was time to completely change - and over the time I'd been a musician, I'd already become a non-drinking, non-smoking, non-drug-taking vegetarian who does yoga."

And that's not mentioning the triathlons.

"People say how can you prefer treating patients to being on stage in front of 100,000 people? But if you can get someone healthy, there's a satisfaction in that which is much more profound."
