Roy Wood: Jazzed-up Wood

Harry Doherty, Melody Maker, 3 September 1977

TAPE RECORDER OFF, Roy Wood typically loosens up, revealing a few of his franker thoughts. "I've written something like 30 hit songs, you know," he whispers, and I am astounded that his total is so high. "It's not easy now to accept that I'm not a success any more."

Total word count of piece: 1986
