Professor Wurzel's Wurzelmania

A Full Wurzelography

Original Wurzelmania page by 'Zider Ed' - Paul Gunningham and Frank Blades
An incomplete the moment!

Want to know more? Below are listed all known members of The Wurzels, past and present. Nineteen the time of writing! I have taken a 'Wurzel' as someone who plays with the band (either live or on recordings) on a permanent basis (i.e. not just 'stepping into the breech' for a week or so - such persons are recorded in this website under the 'supporting musicians' section). Click on the link for each name to visit a page with a Wurzelography for that person.

A pictorial version of this page can be seen on our Wurzel'n Timeline if you click here.
