Wilko Johnson Says Terminal Cancer Harder On His Friends

(Classic Rock) Wilko Johnson insists his terminal cancer is harder for his friends to deal with than it is for him.

The former Dr Feelgood guitarist announced a run of UK shows after revealing he was dying, and that he'd refused chemotherapy.

Johnson tells the Express And Star: "I think the concerts are all going to have a different kind of ambience when you realise something is actually the last time you're going to be doing something.

"I'm just hoping against hope that I remain fit. I'm not going on stage sick, or anything like that."

He's previously discussed his feelings of euphoria since doctors gave him the news, and how much he's enjoying living for the moment.

Read about that and his feeling about his farewell concert tickets being scalped here.
