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.” ~ ♪
