Rest in Peace Nicky Moore

Nicky Moore

Once again it is my sad duty to report another great rocker who has departed this life and gone to the great gig in the sky. Former Samson and Mammoth lead singer Nicky Moore has passed away at the age of 75. Reports say that Nicky had been suffering from Parkinson’s Disease for several years and spent his final years in a nursing home.


Nicky is best known for replacing Bruce Dickinson in Samson after Bruce left to join some band called Iron Maiden. You might have heard of them. Nicky recorded three albums with Samson, taking the band from their NWOBHM sound to a more bluesier one. He would leave Samson to form the band Mammoth in the late 80s. FFI- click the link:

So another rocker is taken from us and is joining that ever growing ensemble in a better place.

Rest in peace, Nicky Moore.
