Nicky Hopkins memorial bench, Perivale Park near Cowgate Road

Ten years ago today I created the 55th post for Greenford 365. To mark the blog’s anniversary I will attempt to post a photo every day throughout 2022.

You may not be familiar with his name but it is highly likely that you’ve heard his piano playing because Nicky Hopkins was a session musician who worked with some of the world’s most iconic artists, in particular The Rolling Stones. It is no surprise that members of that band were among those who funded this memorial bench, their names mentioned on the back. It is located a short walk away from the site of Perivale Maternity Hospital where he was born on this day in 1944.
