Catch the next one:
Wilko Johnson + Roger Daltrey
Wilko Johnson and Roger Daltrey will combine for a one-off date at London's Shepherd's Bush Empire on February 25th, celebrating the release of their new collaboration ‘Going Back Home’.
The record will arrive on March 10th through the resurrected Chess label and was recorded at Yellow Fish in Uckfield with Johnson's touring band and producer Dave Eringa.
Johnson, former guitarist with pub rock pioneers Dr Feelgood, was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer in 2013. Daltrey will donate royalties from the album to a teen cancer charity.
The original Dr Feelgood guitarist, Johnson's choppy guitar style and interesting dress sense kept pub-rock rocking the pubs during the 1970s.
Following a stint with Ian Dury and The Blockheads, the Wilko Johnson Band was formed with ex-Blockhead Norman Watt-Roy on bass and Dylan Howe on drums, adding up to one of the most exciting r'n'b bands in the world today.
