Wizz began his musical career at the age of 18 leading a Country and Skiffle band called “The Wranglers” in his hometown of Croydon, Surrey in 1957. He had been inspired to take up the acoustic guitar a year or so before this after hearing such guitar luminaries as Big Bill Broonzy, Rambling Jack Elliot and Muddy Waters playing at a club in London organized by Cyril Davies and Alexis Korner (The Roundhouse in Wardour Street). Having learned most of his blues licks from Long John Baldry and Davy Graham while playing in the coffee bars of Soho, Wizz followed the time honoured trail – busking throughout Europe with many different musicians including at one time a budding young blues-man named Rod Stewart.
