Congratulations to Roy Wood who took home the The MOJO Classic Songwriter Award at this year’s MOJO Honours List 2010 Awards.

Roy Wood formed three classic British bands: The Move, ELO and Wizzard. He also wrote some of the best pop music of any era, all before he’d turned 22. He has influenced everyone from Paul Weller to Kiss. That’s why he is a Classic Songwriter — with a capital ‘C’ and an equally capital ‘S’. This award is long overdue if you ask me.” Phil Alexander (MOJO’s Editor-In-Chief)
Roy Wood’s classic songs can be heard on the re-mastered and re-issued editions of The Move albums -
