Nick Nicholls – Gamblin’ Man

October 16, 2010

When Rockabilly erupted from the British shores it was known as skiffle. Lonnie Donegan was the biggest star in the UK prior to the Beatles taking the world by storm, in fact this song was Number 1 on the UK charts in July 1957 when John Lennon met Paul McCartney for the first time at a Quarrymen show. Nick Nicholls really steals the show on this tune with his lightning quick blistering solo. Well done Nick!!! Krash Boom Bam would love an interview if you’re available? Drop us a line, enjoy!!!
