The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnston
Anyone who has seen Julian Temple's 2009 documentary Oil City Confidential charting the life and times of Dr Feelgood will surely be looking forward to his forthcoming The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson.
Wilko has miraculously recovered from seemingly inoperable and terminal pancreatic cancer.He opted to live out what he thought were his final days playing music and appreciating beauty wherever he can find it.
His positivity is surely a contributing factor to his recovery
During this period he released an album with a hairy fish farmer and actor on American Express adverts.
Wilko Johnson and Roger Daltrey - Going Back Home
Wilko Johnson and Roger Daltrey - I Keep it to Myself
Better still let me take you back 40 years to the Feelgoods featuring on the Old Grey Whistle Test with Roxette.
Not only does this feature Wilco's classic guitar style and duckwalk it gives some snippets of info which saves me doing it.
A living legend.
