Nigel Glockler (born 24 January 1953, Hove, East Sussex) is an English drummer for the heavy metal band, Saxon.
His first professional musical experience was the UK band Krakatoa, followed by session work. He joined Toyah Willcox's band in late 1980. In 1981 Saxon's drummer, Pete Gill, damaged one of his hands and Glockler, an old friend of Saxon's manager (who played bass in Krakatoa) replaced him. He left the band in Spring of 1987 to join GTR, a supergroup project. He returned to the Saxon fold in late 1988.
In 1998 after tearing muscles in the neck and shoulder doctors advised him against playing drums and was substituted by German drummer Fritz Randow but he continued to write material with the band for subsequent albums. In 2001 he recorded a solo album with Saxon guitarist Doug Scarratt, Mad Men and English Dogs. After Jörg Michael left Saxon in order to rejoin Stratovarius, Glockler was welcomed back to Saxon in 2005.Continue reading at Wikipedia...
