Wasn't Nicky the only one that collaborated with ALL the Lads in their solo works?? Even Billy Preston worked with just three of them but didn't with Paul. The last former Beatle that Nicky worked with before his death was Paul... It's so sad that he passed away so young, he was a very talented keyboardist...

Peace.

Nicky Hopkins is a bit of an unsung legend. Who hasn't he recorded with? The Beatles, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, and Jerry Garcia are just a few that he's recorded with.

Brains, you just have to see the credits on their solo works...
Nicky worked on:
Imagine/Walls and Bridges - John
Ringo/Goodnight Vienna - Ringo
Living In The Material World/Dark Horse/Extra Texture - George
Flowers In The Dirt - Paul
Like MrJones said, Nicky worked with most of great showbiz rockers as The Beatles themselves, Stones, The Who, Jeff Beck, Steve Miller, Jefferson Airplane, Joe ****er, etc., etc...or should we say he was one of the most requested studio musician at that time.

Peace.

Mr.H also recorded with the Rolling Stones. ANGIE wouldn't be the same without his piano work.
