WILKO JOHNSON      

‘I’m supposed to be dead!’  So said Wilko in a recent interview, having been diagnosed in late 2012 with terminal pancreatic cancer.  But despite the doctors’ worst predictions he continued to perform and present himself with vigour and a new zest for life.   In 2013, Wilko announced that, thanks to a second opinion and subsequent life-saving surgery, he was cancer-free.

The original Dr Feelgood guitarist is known for his incredible distinctive chopping guitar style.  Wilko has gone on to find further success recently after teaming up with Roger Daltrey on 2014’s Going Back Home.  An album of the year it featured reworkings of songs from Wilko’s Dr Feelgood days such as ‘All Through The City’ and ‘Going Back Home’.

The Wilko Johnson Band was formed with ex-Blockhead Norman Watt-Roy on bass and Dylan Howe on drums, adding up to one of the most exciting R’n’B bands in the world today.  In Sept 2017, Wilko celebrated his 70th birthday and 30th Anniversary by playing a sold out show at the world famous Royal Albert Hall in London.
