  • You may try to pick Nicky Hopkins' finest moment, but you'll end up realising it's practically the same as choosing rock's finest moment. He was essential part of most of the finest moments of most of the finest bands, during most of rock's finest years. The man and his piano were there spirit of the 60's and the 70's in popular music in the Western emisphere, more than any other one-musician-and-his-instrument, including all those he played with. If you don't get it, take a look at the man's discography: http://rocksoff.org/nicky-sessions.htm .

  • its my belief, and im sure its one that is shared by most real stones fans, that he was integral to the stones flavour. He added such amazing, spine tingling, breath taking moments and flourishes to their work during their peak btwn 69/73. Tracked down his second solo effort the Tin Man Was A Dreamer and I am currently on my first listen to it ... drool
