Wizzard: Making 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day'

Johnny Black, Q, January 1996

Mike Burney (sax, Wizzard): I'd been doing really boring big band gigs on the ballroom circuit so when Roy offered me a job in Wizzard I was just knocked out. I used to say to him, "Roy, being in this band, it's like Christmas every day." And, as far as I know, Roy picked up on that as a song title.
