Diamond Tiaras - the Nicky Hopkins Story

on BBC Radio 2

Bob Harris recalls the life and extraordinary career of session pianist Nicky Hopkins , who played on more than 300 albums, 13 of them by the Rolling Stones. Other beneficiaries of the Hopkins touch include the Beatles, Dusty Springfield, David Bowie , the Kinks, Rod Stewart and Joe Cocker. Hopkins suffered from
Crohn's disease, which indirectly resulted in his death in 1994, aged 50, and never pursued a full-time career with one band. Expect to hear exclusive sessions and interviews with Joe Cocker , Bill Wyman , Dave Davies ,
Graham Parker , Ian McLagan (of the Faces), Steve Miller , biographer
Julian Dawson and Hopkins's widow Moira. Producer Nick Low
