English Rock Drummer, Singer
Born in Wallasey, England in 1949, drummer and backing vocalist Nigel Olsson came into prominence in 1970 as one-third of Elton’s live “power trio”. Nigel was a mainstay of Elton’s touring & recording band in the ‘70s and ‘80s, playing on all his classic recordings and amassing an extremely loyal following. As a solo artist, Nigel has seen four of his singles hit the pop music charts, and he has made a name for himself in the world of vintage auto racing as well. Back in the band since the ‘One Night Only’ concerts in 2000, Nigel is once again providing the soulful heartbeat, so essential to Elton and Bernie’s songs.
