Miss you so much already Nick ‘Noola’ Newall.
This one’s hard.
My many instrument talented tenor player and wise dignified friend of 60 yrs has passed into the ether last night.
Never a cross word or wrong note passed his lips in all the time we spent together, in vans, cars, buses, planes and smelly band rooms in all the towns we played.
The longest standing member of the Roll Band (Big or little) he always contributed more than his recompense.
His class continues to show in that he requested no funeral so all I can do to indicate my respect is to recommend you listen to the countless impeccable solos he provided on my and many others’ recordings.
Warm heartfelt memories of great intelligent humour to his dear Marilyn and their son that will no doubt carry them through this painful time. His quiet voice and laugh are with us still.

Nick Newall, from Barcodes & Friends CD
Get booking now, because Thursday 26th of October …yes THIS month… Big Roll will be rolling into the Bulls Head, Barnes.
We will remember the late Nick Newall: replacing him on tenor will be the very able Nick Payne.
A celebration of Nick N’s life will be announced later on Facebook for friends and musicians to pay respects.
Meanwhile… see you on Oct 26th. Right?
Out in May – a brand new VINYL of “Live at Klooks Kleek”: a 50th anniversary re-issue of that iconic recording, which was produced by Gus Dudgeon. (Cos true fans will have worn their original copies to a wafer)…
Then in June, a three CD box set with a book of comments and pics of….
- “Live At Klooks Kleek”
- “Big Roll Band live at the Flamingo”. This is a repackaged re release of “Where you There”
originally released on Sanctuary in 2008.
- “Big Roll Band live at the BBC ” – various Light Program Saturday Club performances in
65/66/67, with Brian Matthew interviewing Zoot before each track.
The Live Collection
This is the first guitar Jimi Hendrix played when he arrived in the UK.
Zoot Money tells Steve Owers (Danze Macabre) the tale, and shows off the extraordinary guitar. A little bit of rock history right there.

A veritable flurry of activity is taking place at Camp Big Roll.
As previously reported, Zoot is soon to depart on a massive tour with the Manfreds and PP Arnold. Click on the pic to buy tickets.
AND THAT’S NOT ALL, BIG ROLLERS!! OH NO.
While you all assumed he’d shuffled off into retirement (oh, really – come on – this is Zoot we’re talking about here), Mr Money has in reality been in the studio recording a new album. And it’s ready. And it’s rockin’. Twin brothers Steve and Mark Owers, of Danze Macabre, have produced a CD of new songs written by Zoot, themselves and Mike D’Abo. And you’re going to love it. Available very, very soon from Treasure Island Music and the usual outlets.
