Further info in the book and at The Baker’s blog at

Garry Baker was Topper Headon's drum tech and the band's roadie from the late 70s forward. Small, baby-faced and cherubic at the time, Baker can be seen in several photos in Pennie Smith's The Clash: Before & After, in addition to several scenes from the 1979 film, Rude Boy.

Since The Clash disbanded, Baker returned to college, earning a degree in English. Presently, he is a journalist living in London.

Along with road manager Johnny Green, Baker co-authored the road memoir A Riot of Our Own that details life on tour with The Clash circa 1979.
