Today is Nicky Hopkins Birthday.
Sad when we lost him . Some of the Greatest Stones songs featured NICKY.
I'll play SWAY in his honor!

Some time ago there was a whole broadcast dedicated to him on a swiss charts radio station. I was really surprised!
Happy birthday Nicky!

You can listen to it here: [www.srf.ch]

But it's in Swiss German, so...spinning smiley sticking its tongue out

His birthday was yesterday but never mind.
Here he is with his first band, Lord Sutch's Savages.



Left to right: Bernie Watson, Nicky, Ricky (Fenson) Brown and Carlo Little.
Ricky and Carlo also played with the early, pre Bill and Charlie, Rolling Stones.
The whole band later backed Cyril Davies as the All Stars:

Don't forget he joined one of the original SF bands, Quicksilver Messenger Service, for a couple of years. Not sure just what albums he played on, but he was listed as a member from 1969 - 1971. Did he play on QMS' Fresh Air or What About Me? Two great tunes to throw into your music mix. QMS are much overlooked.

Truly talented guy, who added so much flavour to the Stones sound......

Hard to believe he's been gone over 20 years.....

As Jagger would say, Play us some diamond tiaras Nick

What a drag it is gettin' old
