Now thankfully free from cancer, the inimitable and influential Essex guitarist keeps on chugging away
After he was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 2012, the legendary Canvey Island guitar man stilled toured incessantly, declaring that he ‘didn’t like this retirement business’. Now apparently free from cancer after a long and complex operation last year, Wilko shows no signs of slowing down. His thrillingly intimate and rough guitar style has been an influence on players from Mick Jones to Steve Albini, and is really something to see live as he pumps out his strain of hard-drivin’ R’n’B.
