A play friend of John Lennon’s from the age of five, Nigel lived in Vale Road, close to John’s home in Menlove Avenue. He became part of the small, close-knit group of friends cultivated by John, and was nicknamed ‘Whalloggs’.
When Nigel started at Bluecoat Grammar School, John formed his skiffle group the Quarry Men and Nigel was appointed tea-chest player, a task he divided between himself and Ivan Vaughan. One night when two tough Woolton teddy boys Rod and Willo threatened to beat them up as they alighted from a bus, the Quarry Men fled leaving the tea-chest bass in the road, After that, Nigel became their manager and Len Garry took over on tea-chest bass.
Nigel had cards printed:
COUNTRY. WESTERN. ROCK ‘N’ ROLL. SKIFFLE.
