Nigel Olsson (born 10 February 1949) is an English rock drummer and singer best known for his long-time affiliation with Elton John.

In 1969, Nigel and bassist Dee Murray toured and recorded with the Spencer Davis Group, appearing on their album Funky, and Nigel went on to work with Uriah Heep for a short while, performing on their debut album, Very ‘eavy, Very ‘umble in 1970. It was around this time that Nigel was also drumming on some of Elton’s songwriting demos at the Dick James Studios in London. Although not yet officially part of the band, he made his first appearance on an Elton record playing drums on Lady What’s Tomorrow, from the 1969 album Empty Sky. 1st show: April 20, 1970.
Nigel Olsson reflects on his lengthy career drumming for Elton John, his side interest in auto racing and whether or not he'll retire. Steve Jennings/WireImage. What’s your first memory of hearing an Elton/Bernie original and thinking they’d really come up with something special? That’s going back. I think it was a song called Lady What’s Tomorrow that we cut as a demo. There were a few other things we did, like Turn to Me, but the real stuff started to happen when we did the second album. He had Empty Sky before that and then the next one came out, and it had Your Song on it. The record company wanted him to play a showcase at this place called the Roundhouse, which was a big club in London.
