Original Wurzelmania page by 'Zider Ed' - Paul Gunningham and Frank BladesAn incomplete work.....at the moment!
Over the years many musicians have supported both Adge and The Wurzels - either on-record or at gigs but who could never be considered 'Wurzels' in the true sense. This doesn't diminish their part in The Wurzels' story by any means so here they are!
In addition Mervyn Hancock's book Wurzel's World mentions keyboard player Paul Buck, bass player Ron Keys and drummer Bill Pinnell as musicians 'who have supported the band over the years'. These appear to be musicians who have played with the band but never recorded with them.
If anyone knows anything more about the people listed above, or knows of anyone missing from the list, then I'd be interested to hear from you. I'd also be interested to know what became of former band members - did any of 'em make any further records, take up different careers, or what? If you have any news, don't keep it to yourself - please let us know.
There are three excellent reference sources to go to for detailed information about Adge, his Wurzels and those people who supported them all for many years; these are all readily available online and in bookshops:
