About the Show

Jimmie Nicol is best known for filling in for Ringo Starr in The Beatles when Ringo was hospitalized with tonsillitis on June 3, 1964. For eight concerts during The Beatles’ 1964 world tour, at the height of Beatlemania, Nicol took Starr’s place. Although The Beatles, especially George Harrison, wanted to postpone the tour, manager Brian Epstein, after a frantic phone call, decided to bring in drummer Jimmie Nicol as a temporary replacement.

Nicol played with The Beatles in Denmark, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, and Australia, catapulting him from relative obscurity to global fame and back again within just two weeks.
