Wilko Johnson has a year to live...

Legendary Dr. Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson has been given under a year to live, having been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer just before Christmas.

There was a very good interview with him in this Saturday's Guardian in which Wilko's childhood friend and Feelgood band member John Martin reminisced, "We used to go out cycling a lot – me, him, his brother Malcolm. The furthest we got was, we tried to cycle to Canterbury one day, and realised by the time we got there we'd need lights. We had to turn back because we hadn't got lights. We got as far as Chatham."

Dr. Feelgood was a great British r&b band.
