Happy birthday to Wilko Johnson, born on 12th July 1947, English singer, guitarist, who with Dr Feelgood had the 1979 UK No.9 single ‘Milk And Alcohol’ and a founding member of Solid Senders. Wilko stated in early 2013 that he had terminal cancer and was given just 10 months to live, and aptly announced he was going on a farewell tour. On 22 March 2013, Wilko played what he thought would be his final show guesting with Madness on the television programme Madness Live: Goodbye Television Centre which was broadcast on BBC Four. In Oct 2014 Johnson said he has been “cured” of the terminal pancreatic cancer.
