Andy Nye is an English musician, songwriter and record producer, best known for being a member of the rock band The Michael Schenker Group at their peak in the 1980s. During a long and productive career he has played keyboards for Sheena Easton, Barbara Dickson, Toyah Willcox, Chris Farlowe, Gerard Kenny, Dennis Waterman, Princess Stephanie of Monaco, Jahn Teigen, The Kick, After Hours and Mainland. His songs have been recorded by artists such as Roger Daltrey, Asia, The Michael Schenker Group, Ten Years After, Chris Farlowe, John Entwistle, Colin Blunstone and The Zombies.
On leaving school in 1977, he joined Mainland, a band managed by Deep Purples former co-manager Rob Cooksey, leading to his first studio experience under the auspices of Deep Purple producer Martin Birch. After a successful but gruelling 81 date tour with Leo Sayer in 1979, culminating in 5 nights at The Hammersmith Odeon, the band disintegrated and Nye was requisitioned to play keyboards with rising star Sheena Easton on her 1980 debut world tour.
In 1982 he was approached by Rob Cooksey and asked to perform on a session basis with The Michael Schenker Group (MSG) whom Cooksey was managing at that time. He was quickly inducted as a permanent member after they headlined the Reading Festival in the summer of that year. In 1984, whilst headlining the Rock in Japan series of festivals, which boasted Whitesnake, The Scorpions and Bon Jovi on the same bill, Nye was approached by David Coverdale and asked to jump ship and perform with Whitesnake, after the departure of keyboardist Jon Lord. But he refused when discovering hed be required to perform offstage. After a period of volatility within MSG, Schenker eventually disbanded the group later that year.
Nye, who had previously signed a publishing deal with The Who’s management company, Trinifold, joined forces with The Who’s bassist John Entwistle on a project called The Rock, with Barriemore Barlow (Jethro Tull) on drums, later to be replaced by Zak Starkey (The Who)
