Wilko Johnson, legendary guitarist with Canvey Island pub rock pioneers Dr Feelgood, and Roger Daltrey, lead singer of rock giants The Who are releasing a joint album, ‘Going Back Home’. To celebrate the release of the album, the two musicians were in conversation with The Times rock and pop critic, Will Hodgkinson.
The album’s roots began in 2010 when Roger and Wilko found themselves sitting together at an awards ceremony talking about raucous old school British rhythm & blues. They decided on the spot it would be a great idea to collaborate together. When, in January 2013, Wilko was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and told he had just months to live he seized upon the opportunity to make the most of his time left.
