Terminally ill Wilko Johnson is recording a farewell album with Roger Daltrey.

 

The former Dr Feelgood guitarist decided to team up with The Who’s Daltrey after the pair met at an awards ­ceremony this month.

 

“They did tell me in January I’d be dead in October,” says Wilko, “but I may last into next year. I hope we’ll have something done before I go.”

    I saw Wilko and Norman Watt-Roy + a fine but unknown to me drummer two years ago supporting the Stranglers.
    They were very good and giving the last drop, good luck to him I hope there’s a good album to come?

    Aw; no farewells…just a “See you later…!”
    ((SIGH)) It’s been real, and it’s been sweet.

    To Wilko …

    I have followed you and Dr. Feelgood for the past 35+ years. You are a genius as was Lee. Thank you for all the wonderful music and memories you have given me.
