Who was Nick Gribbon?
Nick was a member of Blackpools ‘The Rockin Vicars’.
From 1963 through 1968, the Blackpool, England-based rock & roll group The Rockin’ Vickers was in performance.
Throughout their career, they performed four singles on tour in the UK and across continental Europe.
But the group is best recognized for having given Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister of Motörhead, who was then known as Ian Willis, the start he needed in his musical career.
Rev Black and the Rockin’ Vicars was their original name; it was later shortened to the Rockin’ Vicars, but they later changed it to “Rockin’ Vickers” in order to play more shows or possibly even acquire a record deal.
Shel Talmy produced their last single, “Dandy,” which was a cover of a Kinks song.
About the Band
The band was founded in 1963, and while many other beat groups of the time gained notoriety by covering R&B and beat standards, the band quickly gained notoriety for its particularly aggressive live performances and outrageous stage costumes, including priestly and Sami garb.
The Vicars, who were mostly well-known as a local act in and around Blackpool, England, also toured continental Europe. They were among the first British rock bands to perform in a communist country when, in the summer of 1965, they visited Yugoslavia.
They made a single, a rocked-up rendition of Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart, in Finland, where they were very well-liked. They made four singles available.
In 1968, the band dissolved.

“So very sorry to hear of the sad passing of the legendary guitar player, Nick Gribbon.
He was just the nicest man and never failed to ask how my boy Jon Gomm was doing with his guitar. I absolutely loved photographing Nick and these were some pictures I took of him this summer when he joined Bob On on the bandstand at a gig in Stanley Park, Blackpool. We’ll miss you Nick. My love and deepest sympathy to your loved ones.”

“I’ve just learned that Nick Gribbon has passed away. Nick was one of the nicest people I’ve ever met and the best showman I’ve ever seen anywhere. I’ve never been a great guitarist, but everything good I’ve ever been able to do, I owe to Nick. I’m sad beyond words and my heart goes out to Luke and all his family and friends. They don’t make em like Nick anymore, and it’s a damn shame. I’d give anything for one last jam in The Queens.”
