Wilko Johnson Wonders 'What's The Point' About Final Album

(Classic Rock) Wilko Johnson sometimes find himself wondering "What's the bloody point?" when he thinks about his final album. The terminally-ill guitarist is working on one more batch of new music before he bows to the inevitable, after confirming in January that he'd decided not to undergo chemotherapy for his pancreatic cancer.

He was forced to cancel the last few shows of his farewell tour earlier this year due to an unrelated illness but after realising he felt more healthy than he'd expected to, he's added more live dates. He performed in a home crowd at Southend-on-Sea at the weekend.

Wilko tells the Guardian: "I thought I should try to get an album out before I die. But this is a rather indeterminate time for me, so sometimes I do wonder what the bloody point is.

"The last songs, strangely enough, contain a lot of metaphors for death. It's not too heavy, though don't worry." more on this story
