Thanks to my great friend, Emmanuel Huguet at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge. Wilko Johnson has been pulled back from the abyss. 9 hours of surgery and several weeks in hospital. At last, Wilko was back on stage, helping to celebrate the WHO's 50th Anniversary at a special fund raising concert for Teenage Cancer Trust on Armistice Day.
Like all the other musicians, who have given their services for free, Wilko played just one song with the great young R&B band, The Strypes. After the show, Wilko was glad to show off Emmanuel's handiwork. It has been an unbelievable journey for him over the last 18 months. Thank you especially to all who supported him, particularly his family, former manager, Lisa Climie, Roger Daltrey, his fellow band mates, Norman Watt-Roy & Dylan Howe and his best friends, Mike Fawcett and Yuriko Daikoku. You'll see far more of him soon, according to Alan McGee, his new manager. Watch this space!
