Listen to Jamming With Edward! - Nicky Hopkins, Ry Cooder, Mick Jagger, Bill Wyman & Charlie Watts - online music streaming

Keef and Nicky Hopkins (who managed to work with almost all the musical giants of the 60s and the 70s and even had a song written about him by one of them: Session Man from the Kinks' Face to Face album)

Brian Jones and the session man Nicky Hopkins. Both dead before middle age. Hopkins wrote/played the piano intro on She’s A Rainbow. Tumblr

Nicky Hopkins' understated, beautiful piano playing is all over some of the top classic rock songs of all time. He plays a rollicking solo on The Beatles “Revolution.” He also plays in “Sympathy for the Devil” and “Angie” by the Rolling Stones, and his artistry forms the emotional base of Joe Cocker’s hit “You Are So Beautiful.” ~ ♪
