Recognised as one of the greatest musicians to come from The Midlands, Roy Woodplayed his spectacular Christmas concert to a packed-out crowd at Birmingham’s fabulous Symphony Hall.
After celebrating his 40th anniversary in 2013, the former frontman of Wizzard needed to pull off a truly magical performance if he was to come close to topping last year’s show, but top it, he did.
Still sporting his iconic tinted lenses, long hair and beard, Wood didn’t hang around in getting down to business.
After support from Andy Fairweather Low & The Low Riders, and comedian Mick Miller, Wood opened the proceedings with the fantastic California Man. There were a few initial problems with the guitar but Wood shrugged them off, in true rock and roll style, saying "who cares?".
Before long, the show was seemingly becoming a greatest hits concert. We heard many of the classics including the iconic Fire Brigade, made famous from his time in The Move

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
