He previously told The Guardian: "As a kid, I preferred a microscope to a football for Christmas, but I got distracted by music and the option of joining The Clash seemed more fun than medical school.

"The punk scene was more about boozing than drugs, but I saw people deteriorating before my eyes and grew fed up with the arguments.

"I played with the Clash a second time when Topper Headon's drug use became a problem. Then, after the Clash, I played for Black Sabbath and Billy Idol.

"Once I was in Sun City with Black Sabbath and we went ten-pin bowling. After three hours, my shoulder locked up. They said they would find a chiropractor.

"This guy came in, cracked all my joints and I could move my arm again. It made a big impression.

I'd always known I wanted to heal people, so I enrolled on a chiropractic course in Bournemouth and didn't tell anyone who I was.

"But shortly afterwards they re-released Should I Stay Or Should I Go. It was No 1 for three weeks, and of course, I'm in the video, so the secret was out.

He also says that there are some similar skills to drumming to his new profession and his fellow even stars trust him to treat them.

He admitted: "Drums are the most hands-on instruments; chiropractic is the most hands-on medicine. You're manipulating people's spines.

"Mick Jones and Paul Simonon [from the Clash] have sent musicians to me for treatment, and I get some Clash fans."

He added that there have even be some hilarious encounters during his new career.

Terry explained: "There have been some funny moments. Once I was sitting in the car and the mobile went and this voice said: "Is that Terry Chimes Chiropractic? Terry Chimes who used to be in the Clash? This is the singer." It was Joe Strummer."

He now has a chiropractic business bearing his name after he first established a pain clinic in South Woodford, East London pain in 1994.
