It was around this time that Nigel was also drumming on some of Elton’s songwriting demos at the Dick James Studios in London.

Olsson had released a solo album in 1971 called Nigel Olsson’s Drum Orchestra and Chorus and in the wake of his departure from John’s group, he cut a self-titled album for John’s Rocket label. Another eponymous effort followed for Columbia in 1978 and after a switch to Bang, Olsson scored a hit single in 1979 with Dancin’ Shoes (from the album Nigel). 1980 saw the release of a follow-up LP, Changing Tides, as well as Olsson’s membership in the Tremblers, a group uniting Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits fame with the Captain & Tennille’s Daryl Dragon.
