Biography Picture   Terrence "Terry" Chimes is an English musician, best known as the original drummer of punk rock group The Clash. He originally played with them from July 1976 to November 1976, January 1977 to April 1977, and again from May 1982 to February 1983. He later drummed for Hanoi Rocks in 1985, before the band broke up that same year. He briefly toured with Black Sabbath from July 1987 through December 1987, and in a one-off gig in May 1988.

     Terry Chimes was a member of the proto-punk band London SS, which also featured Mick Jones and Paul Simonon who, with Chimes, would team up with Joe Strummer and Keith Levene to form The Clash.

     After leaving The Clash, Chimes drummed in bands including Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers briefly in 1977 and 1984, Cowboys International in 1979, Gen X from 1980 to 1981, Hanoi Rocks in 1985, The Cherry Bombz in 1986 (with ex Hanoi Rocks members Andy McCoy and Nasty Suicide and ex Sham 69/Wanderers/The Lords of the New Church Dave Tregunna) and Black Sabbath on their Eternal Idol Tour in 1987–88. He also played drums with Billy Idol for a period of time.

     In 2003, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Clash. At the induction ceremony, he gave an acceptance speech praising Topper Headon's work.
