Swaying Round

Good to hear that Nicky Hopkins ('44-'94) finally got his well-deserved memorial. Most famous for his work with the Stones (She's A Rainbow, Sympathy For The Devil, Exile On Main St), the session musician par excellence also helped out the Beatles, the Kinks, Jeff Beck, The Who, and the Jefferson Airplane (on stage at Woodstock no less). Even if you don't know his name, you'll have heard him playing keyboards on a couple of your favourite records. Tip: buy the man's '73 solo effort The Tin Man Was A Dreamer: a highly enjoyable record.
