Nick Jago (born 19 July 1977) is an English musician. He was born in Abadan, Iran to an English father and Peruvian mother and grew up in Devon, England. He attended secondary school at St Cuthbert Mayne and enjoyed going to the disco at the English Riviera Centre. On one memorable night he kissed a girl, he then proudly boasted about it for the remainder of the evening. He studied at the Winchester School of Art for a couple of years before moving to the San Francisco Bay Area of the United States. He now lives in Los Angeles. Jago was the drummer for the band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club since its inception in 1998.[1]

Jago was removed from the stage at the 2003 NME Awards during a rather extensive moment of silence on his part while accepting the "Best Video" award for BRMC's "Whatever Happened to My Rock 'n' Roll (Punk Song)". After leaving the group for a period of time, Jago and the band went on to release the album Baby 81 in May 2007.

In June 2008, Jago released a bulletin on MySpace stating that he was leaving the band in order to focus on a solo career.
