JIM BERKENSTADT’S THE BEATLE WHO VANISHED UNCOVERS THE STORY OF THE BEATLES’ TEMPORARY DRUMMER
I’ve recently had the privilege of speaking with the Rock And Roll Detective himself, Jim Berkenstadt. Jim’s latest book The Beatle Who Vanished gives us an historical account of Jimmie Nicol, an unknown drummer who saved The Beatles’ first world tour by filling in for Ringo Starr when he was suddenly hospitalized for tonsillitis and pharyngitis in June 1964. Jimmie played with The Beatles for 8 gigs in Denmark, Holland, Hong Kong and Australia and then vanished from the public eye very shortly afterwards. Jim’s book has recently been accepted in the permanent research library archives of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
