I do find it amazing that Nigel has managed not only to keep his sanity after a 'full on' rock and roll experience in his formative years in a world famous band, but has emerged relatively unscathed to become a pastor in Bristol working with young kids, absolutely brilliant.
But then he goes and spoils it all by admitting he's siding with the devil's lot across the park.
I hope he finally 'sees the light', we welcome back all sinners who may have strayed.
A truly remarkable article Rob Sawyer, can we have some more please?

Those were the days in the late 70s and the early-mid 80s, for me as a youngster. What happened to time, is crazy,but the best memories, but great laughs now, but more in context of the trials of daily life and getting by.
Let's hope the good times return to Everton FC this season.

Its great that he acknowledges the Everton players of the 80s. as I do some of the great Liverpool players of that era..
His insight into how music shaped his life and influenced his path is also very enlightening...

I remember Nigel joining the band and doing the sugar tax tour, my first being at the Empire Liverpool, followed by the Sheffield gig, having footballer Stuart Pearce sat 3 seats away from me or that one, with an added bonus of a shitty warm up band pulling out and Gary Newman stepping in, to open the billing.
Whatever perception people have of Newman, he did a cracking set, and one of the most down to earth decent guys you could ever... Hats off to Nigel for walking on the Milky Way.
I finally managed to see OMD last year, with Humphries and Cooper back in the band at the Empire, sadly the drummer Holmes can no longer tour with the band due to illness.
So a very good read about a band member I got to see
Iive, and can now put some background to the guy.
Thanks for a great article, Rob.
