Nigel Glockler replaced initial drummer Pete Gill in Saxon. 1982 saw Pete Gill leave the band to join Motörhead and brought Nigel Glockler from the band Toyah to the drum seat.
On the 1987 release "Destiny" a new drummer was featured: Nigel Durham. However, halfway the Destiny Tour that followed the release, Glocker returned to the drum seat. He stayed until 1998, when he took a break from touring with the band due to an injury. He was never to return to the band. After a failed attempt to reinstate Nigel Durham as drummer, Fritz Randow, previously with bands Sinner and Victory, was recruited to fulfill drumming duties.
Nigel Glockler joined Saxon one more time on 2004's Wacken Open Air festival, playing "747 Strangers in the Night" with the group for the first time since retiring.
After Jörg Michael left Saxon in order to rejoin Stratovarius, Glockler returned to Saxon in 2005. Glockler was also featured on Saxon's 2007 album 'The Inner Sanctum'.
