Apart from recording and performing with Wizzard, Roy also had solo hit singles in his own right, two of which entered the top ten U.K. chart " Dear Elaine " and " Forever " @ number 8.
The Los Angeles Times gave Forever a great review, which was written by no other than Brian Wilson. From this association, Roy was invited to Brother Studios to a recording of The Beach Boys " 15 Big Ones " album. He sang together with Brian and Carl Wilson, who had always been heroes of his, and also played saxophone on their track " It's OK " .
We don't have enough room here to cover all of Roy's achievements.
Suffice to say though, he has won many awards, including the Ivor Novello Award for Most Outstanding Song Collection. More recently Kerrang Songwriter Award, Rock Radio's Classic Songwriter Award , and Mojo Honours List , Classic Songwriter Award.
The Degree of Honorary Doctor of Music was conferred upon Roy in January 2008
from The University Of Derby, and his own star on The Birmingham Walk Of Stars in 2010.
He has so far written more than thirty U.K. top 30 chart singles, and is one of the very few people to have written and performed on number one hits with three different acts. The Move, Wizzard and Jive Bunny.
Now touring with Roy Wood Rock & Roll Band . Watch this space for further details.
