Nigel Harrison (born 24 April 1951, Stockport, Cheshire, England) is an English musician, and best known as the bass player of the rock band Blondie.
In the early 1970s Harrison lived in Princes Risborough near Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire. He was the bassist for the local band Farm, and later recorded and toured with Silverhead (fronted by Michael Des Barres) from 1972 to 1974. He was recruited to Blondie from Nite City (former The Doors' keyboardist Ray Manzarek's short-lived band) in 1977 after the band recorded their second album Plastic Letters without a regular bass player and stayed until the band split after Tracks Across America Tour '82.
During his time with Blondie, Nigel Harrison contributed as a songwriter to every album he played on and also co-wrote several hit singles with Debbie Harry, such as "One Way or Another", "Union City Blue" and the band's last single with their original line-up, "War Child", released in 1982.
From 1982 to 1984, he was a member of the band Chequered Past, which also included two of his former bandmates: Des Barres, from Silverhead, and Clem Burke, from Blondie. They released an eponymous album in 1984. Harrison was also music supervisor/producer for the soundtrack to the 1988 comedy Tapeheads.
