Woody Woodgate - Madness

“We're not the sort of band that would go to cue. The more we discovered it made them look stupid, the more we did it.”

Woody Woodgate of Madness was cited by John Lennon in his final interview 2 days before his passing as an up and coming drummer who impressed. 40 odd years in the industry later and Woody tells us all about creating a 4.5 earthquake on the Richter scale, watching Oasis split from the next door changing room and having to fill in their headline slot at Rock en Seine, how It Must Be Love, Baggy Trousers were recorded, playing the Olympics Closing Ceremony and loads more.
