Nick McCabe was the youngest of three children and had a life greatly influenced by music, He lead a normal life training to be a Quantity surveyor until he met Richard Ashcroft at Winstanley college near Wigan.
McCabe then united with Ashcroft along with Simon Jones and Peter Salisbury to form the Verve.
Musically Nick has always expressed his fondness of synthesizers and explained his 'psychadelic' sound as trying to make a guitar sound like a synthesizer by using effects pedals and Valve Amps.
The Verve - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1500 words)
Although they enjoyed their greatest success while the Britpop movement was at its height, they aren't considered such an act at all and their rise to success did not happen overnight - the band released LPs that were critically acclaimed and highly regarded, yet worldwide commercial success eluded them for most of their career.
Things got worse when Nick McCabe suddenly pulled from the tour and decided he couldn't tolerate the constant life on the road any longer (some speculate that the incident with Jones and McCabe's relationship with Ashcroft were the reasons).
Nick McCabe has mostly remained quiet after the breakup, although he has recently worked with a few artists, notably John Martin and Leeds based band, The Music.
