Mini-documentary about Nico's relationship with Brian Jones. Nico moved to London in 1965, where she met the Stones and recorded a single for Immediate Records, which was Rolling Stones' manager Andrew Oldham's record label. Both Brian Jones and Jimmy Page played guitar on the single. It featured the song "I'm Not Saying" on the A-side and "The Last Mile" on the B-side. Nico's love affair with Brian lasted three months but they remained friends after it ended. Brian Jones took Nico to Andy Warhol's Factory in 1965 and their last public appearance together was at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967.

P.S. It's not Nico's real voice in the video but they're all real quotes from Nico. Things she said in interviews, etc...

Brian Jones does not play any instrument on any Nico song. This erroneous information is being rehashed over and over.

Jimmy Page and John McLaughlin were amongst the most in demand session players re pop and rock music in London during the early to mid sixties. McLaughlin did one short session with Mick Jagger and then he walked out saying "what the hell is going on here", despite the fact he needed the money. He could get along with Jagger very well but preferred to play with Duffy Power on a few tracks, along with Jack Bruce and Ginger Baker. Duffy Power was a criminally underrated blues/ pop singer and harp player.

I was going to post the exact same point, Mathijs.

We all know how in demand Jimmy Page and Big Jim Sullivan were, but I’ve always been under the impression that John McLaughlin was only very briefly involved in the session scene. The top-four most popular amongst London producers were probably Page, Sullivan, Vick Flick and Eric Ford.

McLaughlin was asked very often, but "hated" the job. He rejected very often, and as soon as he could cut it on his own, he left the scene.

Considering he's a serious jazz guitarist, that isn't surprising, really. He wouldn't have enjoyed performing on Herman's Hermits latest, I suppose.

Likely not indeed. The acoustic on Herman's Hermits famous hit "No Milk Today" [yamm.finance] is probably the most heard guitar playing John McLaughlin is credited for, as confirmed by their lead singer Peter Noone, despite the fact that McLaughlin is a big name and innovator in Jazz and Jazz-Rock. According to Colin Harper (Bathed in Lightning) McLaughlin got payed some £60 for a session. It's a mad world sometimes. smiling smiley
