BEHIND THE MUSIC THE PRODUCERS NICKY GRAHAM

FROM THE NOLANS TO PJ & DUNCAN VIA THE MEGA-SUCCESSFUL BROS, PRODUCER AND SONGWRITER NICKY GRAHAM CERTAINLY KNOWS HOW TO SCORE A CHART-TOPPING EARWORM – YET THERE’S MUCH MORE TO HIS EXTRAORDINARY LIFE IN POP THAN HITS…

The writer of Let’s Get Ready To Rhumble, the charming Nicky Graham, has just sung that huge 90s hit down the phone to me, plus a line or two from another 80s smash,

When Will I Be Famous?

Most songwriters would be happy with that double whammy, but Nicky has written and produced a slew of others for acts as diverse as Let Loose, The Nolans and his own 70s rock bands The End and Tucky Buzzard.

Yet this is just a small part of our pop chat. He’s shared the stage with The Beatles, Bill Wyman was his manager, and then there’s Nicky Graham: the Spider From Mars. Memories! he sings down the line – you can’t keep a good songwriter from singing, I guess – and it makes you realise that this particular scribe has lived a life most of us couldn’t even imagine, let alone aspire to.

NICKY’S SIX

THE HITS, MISSES AND MAYBES…

HALF A DOZEN OF GRAHAM’S MEMORABLE MOMENTS… PLUS A ‘GOLDEN’ TUCKY BUZZARD ALBUM*
