You know,,,,I never followed up on Jimmy. I wonder what he's doing today (I dont know if he's even still alive, but I would imagine I would have heard if he passed).

I thought he handled the situation like a true professional. He knew that it was going to be a short stint, but how could anyone pass it up. He was always happy and looked as though he was having the time of his life in the interviews i've seen. I'm sure i've seen some footage of him playing with the band, but I cant recall the exact moment or time right now.

Yeah I've seen footage of him playing on the Holland tour, and a couple of TV shows. Didn't he also play China or somewhere like that?

I believe he also played for the Sputnicks, a Shadows-style instrumental band that had a few hits in the 60's.

Jimmy inspired the song "Getting Better". On tour, he was always being asked, "How's it going, Jimmy?". He'd always reply, "Getting better".

He played in Hong Kong and that was his last concert with them because Ringo joined in Australia. :)

Jimmy Nichol has got to be the most mysterious member of the Beatles during the 60's more so than any crazy album cover controversy at the time with his 15 minutes of fame before Ringo rejoined the band.

And I don't think he could be considered a Member, he was a stand in.

You know I was just remembering I saw a tv show once, about the Beatles, and they interviewed Jimmy Nichol and Pete Best, and they both declared how Beaing any part of the Beatles Jinxed then for life.. Though to be fair Peach Besht it doing ok now. I think

PC would know; him and Pete arethisclose

He was a " member " of the Beatles before Ringo rejoined the band just as much as John, Paul & George were if only for a brief moment.

Pete WAS a Beatle, not a replacement.

Two years is a long time, and he lived, ate, excreted and created with them.  He lived the hardest years of their lives with them.

No one can take away the fact that he was one of the absolute Beatles.  Just pre-fame.  Which sucks.  For him.

Does anyone know how I can get in touch with Jimmy Nichol? I am a journalist and want to talk to him for a story about the Australian tour.
