Wilko Johnson: "I won't be dressing up as a prawn for the Royal Albert Hall"

The former Dr. Feelgood guitarist on feeling good and hitting the road at 70

In late 2012, doctors informed Wilko Johnson that he had a year to live due to pancreatic cancer. However, after making an album with Roger Daltrey, playing a farewell tour and receiving a second opinion, subsequent life-saving surgery presented a miracle cure. This coming autumn, Wilko celebrates his 70th birthday and three decades of solo activity with a show at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
