Born: 8th May 1942, Arkansas City, Kansas, USA.
American saxophonist & vocalist, mostly associated with the bands of Frank Zappa.
Sherwood gained his nickname 'Motorhead' as a teenager in gigging bands on the 'car club' circuit, tinkering with cars and custom-painting them. He met [a92623] in 1956 through high-school, where he attended with Bobby Zappa in Antelope Valley, California.
He became a member of The Blackouts and was later part of the retinue around 'Studio Z' which had gathered as a result of [a573052]'s PAL work. Sherwood subsequently became a roadie for Zappa bands and was blessed with the pseudonym 'Larry Fanoga' on the [m35641] album, on which he was part of the chorus in The Abnuceals Emuukha Electric Orchestra.
Sherwood performed in early Zappa line-ups and on various FZ albums, including "Civilization Phaze III" - a revisit to the themes found in "Lumpy Gravy". He was also a member of [a1336323] and then worked on projects with [a214846] and [a1312260]. He was also a member of [a1663374].
