Nigel has been the drummer for Saxon since 1981 after earning his chops as a sought-after session drummer in the U.K. Glockler also beat the skins for the super group, GTR as well as for Asia and other groups and artists.

Saxon has a new album out titled “Inspirations” – a collection of covers of the band members favorite songs by some of their favorite bands. Released March 19th of this year, via Silver Lining Music, Inspirations gets things rolling with the release of Saxon’s crunching take on The Rolling Stones’ ‘Paint It Black’. Nigel’s bandmate, Biff Byford, commented: “Loved this band since I first saw them and heard them. I liked the Beatles, but the Stones appealed to my rebel side; their iconic look… so many great songs, such a great attitude in the music!”
