"When you've played with the best, the rest is just, well, the rest." Jimmy Nicol ‘87.

In 1968 Andy Warhol said,"In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes."

So far as the majority of Beatles fans are concerned, he could just as well have been talking about the past......and in particular Jimmy Nicol.

It was Jimmy , who temporarily replaced Ringo as the Beatles drummer for ten whirlwind days for their tour of the Netherlands and the first date in Australia.

On the 14th of June 1964 Jimmy flew back to England and so far as the world was concerned, disappeared back into the obscurity from which he had briefly emerged.

As is usually the case, the truth is a whole lot different.

Jimmys recording career began in the late 1950s when between 1957 and 1959 he was the drummer with Colin Hicks and the Cabin Boys. Colin actually being the brother of a more famous artist, Tommy Steele.

Before that, he had been a drum repairer/technician with Boosey and Hawkes and had also occupied the drummers seat in a few very well known big bands,1960: The Oscar Rabin Band. 1961: and The Cyril Stapleton Big Band.

Following his departure from the Cabin Boys,he joined another fledgling Rock and Roll outfit Vince Eager and the Quite Three until 1960.

The trail then grows cold so far as recordings are concerned as Jimmy seems to have been involved almost exclisively in session work , including jobs with musicians from the orchestras of Ted Heath and Johnny Dankworth.

Rumours persist that he was a member of Georgie Fame and The Blue Flames in 1964, and whilst it is true that he played at the Flamingo Club, where the Blue Flames were the House Band..there is no trace of him on the recordings that they made at the time.

However in 1964 he formed his own band , The Shubdubs whilst continuing his session work.

He had worked for George Martin on both a Tommy Quickly recording session and possibly others on the NEMS roster.A set of recordings entitled Beatlemania featuring a number of Beatles songs also had Jimmie on drums.. When Ringo was hospitalised, it was George who recommended him to Brian Epstein as a replacement.

He rehearsed with John Paul and George at Abbey Road but sadly no recordings seem to exist.

Once back in England , Jimmy reformed the Shubdubs and during 1964 and 1965 they toured extensively. During this time Jimmy also released a solo single as The Sound of Jimmy Nicol.

Between 1965 and 1967 he was a member of the well-known Swedish guitar group The Spotnicks who rush-released a single, The Spotnicks Introducing Jimmy Nicol, titled Husky and Drum Diddley.

In 1967, Nicol lived in Mexico working with samba & bossa nova groups, amongst whom were an outfit called Blue Rain.

He married and had a son, Howard, who in the 1990s was to win an award as sound engineer for his work on a BBC collection of Beatles recordings.

In 1969, he recorded "Jumpin' Jack Flash" (sung in Spanish) with his own band, "Jimmie Nicol Show".

It is here that our story ends.

Sadly we have been unable to trace all of Jimmys recordings, those which have eluded us are

"The Shubdubs" :

Baby Please Don't Go


Solo single as "The Sound of Jimmy Nicol" :


Bim Bam

and Jumpin' Jack Flash (sung in Spanish by "Jimmie Nicol Show").

It is not known if “Blue Rain” ever enterd the recording studio.

What remains is we hope definitive .

Enter Jimmie Nicol, a 24-year-old London drummer whose studio work had impressed Epstein. McCartney also knew Nicol the Beatle had recently caught a performance by Nicol with Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames. He had also played on three late-'50s singles by Colin Hicks and the Cabin Boys. After a six-song audition, Nicol was hired, given a Beatle haircut and told to pack for the flight to Denmark the next day. In the hospital, Starr recalled that hed replaced Pete Best as the Beatles drummer two years earlier. It was very strange, them going off without me, Starr said in Anthology. Jimmie Nicols name was first brought up by producer George Martin who had worked with him previously and was aware that hed been the session drummer for an album full of Beatles covers simply titled Beatlemania , meaning that he was able to play at least some of the Beatles back catalogue competently already. When he accepted, he was fitted for a suit and had his hair cut into a traditional Beatles moptop. He was now set to go on a world tour as a temporary member of the Beatles. Exactly how much Nicol was paid for his brief stint with the band has never been confirmed. James George Nicol, known as Jimmie Nicol or Jimmy Nicol born August 3, 1939, is a British drummer, best known for being a temporary member of The Beatles.

When Ringo Starr collapsed and was hospitalised on 3 June 1964 with tonsillitis on the eve of The Beatles' 1964 Australasian tour,. Martin then suggested using Jimmie Nicol , as he had recently recorded a session with him and had also drummed on an album of Beatles covers as part of a session band called The Koppykats , and so Nicol knew The Beatles songs well. Nicol was sitting at home when he received a call for an audition at Abbey Road Studios. Heres a photo from thats days rehearsal with John Lennon , Paul McCartney & George Harrison. Check out this picture of all four Beatles with Jimmie Nicol. Nicol had a tough time to adjusting to life after his stint in The Beatles. Nicol said several years later: Standing in for Ringo was the worst thing that ever happened to me. George Martin suggested Jimmie Nicol, who he had recently recorded during a session for Tommy Quickly. Nicol had also played the drums on an album of Beatles covers called Beatlemania, and therefore knew how to play the songs. They nearly didnt do the Australia tour. George is a very loyal person, and he said, If Ringos not part of the group, its not The Beatles. I dont see why we should do it, and Im not going to. It took all of Brians and my persuasion to tell George that if he didnt do it he was letting everybody down. Jimmie Nicol was a very good drummer, who came along
