Screaming Lord Sutch and the Savages were a British rock group from the early 1960s, sporting an ever-changing line-up of musicians and a taste for horror themes and zany humour. Some[who?] regard them as forerunners of both The Sex Pistols and Monty Python. The group was founded by drummer Carlo Little, who was a friend of David Sutch, better known as Screaming Lord Sutch.

Personnel[edit]

Of the many musicians that would play with the Savages over the years, some would go onto major stardom in their own right, most notably Jimmy Page, Ritchie Blackmore, Jeff Beck, Noel Redding, Jon Lord, Matthew Fisher, Ian Hunter, Adrian Gurvitz, actor Paul Nicholas, and Nicky Hopkins.
