Wizzard frontman Roy Wood has unveiled a life-sized oil painting of himself at a renowned music club in the Black Country.

The Birmingham-born rocker, who was also a founding member of The Move and Electric Light Orchestra, saw the picture for the first time at a ceremony at the Robin 2, in Bilston, yesterday afternoon.

Court in the Act was painted by Australian artist Debra Dee and depicts the 64-year old siting on a throne, with a younger version of himself peering over his shoulder.

The exhibit will now be a permanent fixture at Woody's Bar, which is named after the musician, and will sit alongside several other smaller portraits of the star. Roy said: "I hadn't seen it before and she hadn't given me any idea what it was going to be like but it's great.

"She has done quiet a few pictures of me now and she always does a good job so I wasn't nervous about seeing it."

He added that he has a fondness for The Robin and would be returning to the Mount Pleasant venue on November 26 to perform a Christmas-themed show, before touring with Status Quo in December.
