Wilko Johnson 1947-2022
“More than anything Wilko wanted to be a poet. I was lucky to have known him and have him as a friend. His music lives on but there’s no escaping the final curtain this time.
So it’s goodnight to Mad Carew, the uncompromising Bard of Canvey.”

I was lucky enough to be I. The crowd when Wilko and Roger performed Going Back Home at Shepherds Bush … it was R&B on steroids .. Wilko commanded such presence with his unique style and together with Roger what a sound, what an atmosphere , what a great complimentary partnership . I always hope they would tour .. alas just a fabulous memory . Thanks
You got a post out quick Rog. Just knew you would. RESPECT! Gonna miss the crazy in black.
RIP Wilko a great loss
I felt so privileged to have seen Roger perform some Wilko’s songs on his solo tour. Rip Wilko.
So glad Roger had a chance to record with Wilko. They had a great connection.
RIP big man, great words by Rog.
Went to see Wilko at the Concert of the Kings in Wiltshire in 2017 – what a guitarist, straight playing no gimmicks, he could play anywhere with a band and without. R.I.P.
OMG I am so sad. Wilko was a one off. He made the sound of Dr Feelgood and when he partnered up with Rog then I was so made up. The Who being the greatest rock n roll band in the word ever
My condolences to the family and friends of Wilko.
Such an original soul and sweet man.
Roger. What a lovely thing to say.
Nailed THE MAN Mister RD. You are all we have now
Are there any official live albuns released by them?
