The Rutles, Barry Wom and His So Fear Band, Nigel Pap
Sir Barry Wom, MBE born Barrington Womble, is a musician who became famous as the drummer of The Rutles. He was also the first Rutle to release a solo album, entitled When You Find the Girl of Your Dreams in the Arms of some Scotsmen from Hull.
Barry was knighted in the 2018 New Years Honours List for his services to music and hairdressing.
Introduction into the groupEdit
Eighteen months into the forming of the Rutles, the group discovered Barrington Womble in the back of their van. They invited him to play in their band, but asked him to change his name to "Barry Wom" to save time.
Barry has penned three songs whilst being with the Rutles: "Living in Hope" on The Shite Album, a currently-untitled song on the Triangular Album and "Easy Listening" on Shabby Road. During his solo years he's amassed a huge number of songs, and the majority of them made a large dent on the charts.
After The Rutles Edit
Barry Wom has enjoyed great success as a businessman. He now owns two hair salons, and gives moptop haircuts to fans and customers alike every summer.
