Professor Wurzel's Wurzelmania

A Full Wurzelography

Original Wurzelmania page by 'Zider Ed' - Paul Gunningham and Frank Blades
An incomplete work.....at 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.
