While he can't be blamed for the condition, Nicky Hopkins has been dead since 1994.

Incidentally, why are you so positively determined to put Paul McCartney behind the drum set? I know, I know, he's played a bit of drums for his solo releases but Jeff Beck has played with a number of much better drummers.

 ???

SORRY Hepcat. I think you misinderstood me  when I said: How's this for a Super Group ?
What I was referring to were the Musicians who played on
"Paul Jones - The Dog Presides (1967)"
Vocals & Harmonica:Paul Jones
Guitar: Jeff Beck
Bass: Paul Samwell Smith
Drums: Paul McCartney
Keyboards: Nicky Hopkins
Produced by: Peter Asher
and believe it or not Paul McCartney is the drummer on "the Dog Presides", most likely as a favour
to Peter Asher.

...FYI if I was pitting together a fantasy supergroup you're right McCartney wouldn't be my pick on drums.

No, there are countless nameless jazz guitarists who could blow every "guitar god" out of the water.     

But if I were to pick the greatest Rock guitaist Id pick Billy Gibbons.

Okay, now I understand! The Dog Presides is indeed an excellent tune though.

I highly recommend a youtube channel called Yesterday's Papers:
http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZU5PMveTuyvJSLGE3Zzxcg
Well done videos with info taken right from vintage English Rock mags of the 60's like NME
 and Melody Maker. The best are the "Rockstar's review the Singles of such and such Date"
OMG they're brutally honest to the point where you'd think some animosity is involved.  >:D
The great part is discovering tons of little gems like "The Dog Presides" that were probably never released on our side of the Atlantic.

I still can't believe he's dead  :'( I almost went to see him a couple of months back. I thought for sure he would live to be 100 as he was vegan for over 50 years and to my knowledge was never a Heroin junkie unlike his two fellow Yardbirds (EC & JP) coupled also with the fact that he was still improving and constantly exploring new Guitar sounds while his peers were all comfortable with resting on their laurels, existing in a career holding pattern. RIP to the Maestro Jeff Beck .. you are and will be forever missed!
