Neil Christian (born Christopher Tidmarsh, 4 February 1943,[1] Hoxton, East London) had a solo hit single in 1966, when "That's Nice" (written by Miki Dallon), reached Number 16 in the UK Singles Chart.[2 ] However, he remains a one-hit wonder. Follow-up singles "Oops" and "Two at a Time" never reached the charts.



Neil Christian and the Crusaders are one of the British rock and roll bands of the 1960s. Fronted by their singer Christian, originally the band consisted of Elmer Twitch piano; Tornado Evans drums; Ritchie Blackmore guitar; and Bibi Blange bass. They were signed to the Strike record label.

In the early 1960s Jimmy Page was asked to join The Crusaders. Page toured with Christian for approximately two years, and later played on several of his records, including their November 1962 single, "The Road to Love".

Everything Christian released between 1962 and 1968 has been reissued on the CD compilation, That's Nice, which also added several unreleased recordings from the same era.[1]
