My guitar hero got his start with Sutch (cut and pasted) - In the beginning Ritchie Blackmore, ill at ease dressed in animal skin, used to hide behind his amps and in the wings. So Sutch used to grab him and pull him out. At one such gig on June 25, 1962, Screaming Lord Sutch and the Savages headlined at Wembley Town Hall. Keith Moon, another future Who, was in the audience and saw Ritchie Blackmore whose devastating runs up and down the guitar were leaving people gasping for breath.
