BiographyEdit

Nick Jameson was born to Classics scholar and Professor Emeritus (Department of Classics, Stanford University) Michael H. Jameson and his wife, Virginia. In the event of his father death, he wrote his eulogy:

(excerpt) "... he was a serious man who did not suffer fools gladly, and it was a source of some annoyance to him that by infecting me at an early age with his secret love of humor, he turned me into the court jester of the family. By making me a Pogo fan, he created a monster who for weeks at a time would communicate with him only in the dialect of the Okeefenokee. As a result of enamoring me of his favorite radio program, the Goon Show, with its cast of insane characters, he found himself sitting down to dinner with all thirty-two of them every night. And I'm sure he kicked himself for giving me Brendan Behan's autobiography when I'd answer his questions about school with colorful epithets and rebel songs from the North of Ireland.
He was keen to have me follow in his footsteps and be a brilliant academic; unfortunately his love of music was contagious, and I quit high school to become a rock and roller. I was reminded last month of this devotion to music while sorting through some of his boxes. I discovered three hundred cassette tapes of recordings he'd made off the radio, all meticulously numbered and cataloged, albeit in his indecipherable handwriting. Now I don't feel odd for having spent years doing the same thing. Perhaps there's a gene for that type of activity.
I guess I should clarify that Mike and his wife of 58 years, Virginia, had four sons, of which I'm the eldest, followed by Anthony, John and Dave, in chronological order. Although we spent most of our youth in Philadelphia, my brothers and I were fortunate to have spent many years in Europe as a result of Dad's work, most memorably living in Italy for 15 months and another 15 in Greece. This was undoubtedly a cause of my coming to share Dad's love of languages and dialects; in fact, I now make my living as an actor, playing characters who speak in a wide variety of accents. Dad enjoyed this, and, being half-Jewish, was, I believe, secretly proud that his eldest, though not a doctor, played one on TV quite regularly.
Some of the best times I had with my Dad in recent years were spent enjoying things peculiar to our tastes, such as spending hours watching Chinese soap operas (sans subtitles) and listening to recordings of the Peking street vendors he heard in his boyhood, which was spent in Peking. Once again, this became an addiction for me..."

Nick Jameson has also had a relatively lengthy career in music, as producer, engineer, composer and multi-instrumentalist, and he has worked with an intriguing smorgasbord of artists that includes Bonnie Raitt, Richie Havens, Paul Butterfield, Orleans, Todd Rundgren and Maria Muldaur. Early on, he was a member of The American Dream, a 1960s Philadelphia band. A prominent success soon followed when he briefly became the unofficial fourth member of the British blues-rock band Foghat in the mid-70's, producing several of their albums as well, including Fool for the City, which spawned the band's biggest hit Slow Ride. Jameson's bass-playing is prominently featured on this track as well as the rest of the album. He has also released a couple of solo albums: Already Free (1977) and A Crowd of One (1986), a collaboration with author Richard Bach. The track Love's Closing In was featured on the soundtrack to the 1986 film, A Fine Mess.
