Fan's Love Helping Keep Wilko Johnson Alive

(Classic Rock) The author of Wilko Johnson's official biography believes one of the main reasons he's still alive is the outpouring of love he's received since announcing he had terminal cancer.

The former Dr Feelgood guitarist was told by doctors that he'd be dead by October 2013 - but he's still going strong. He's just about to release Going Back Home, his album with The Who frontman Roger Daltrey, and he's gearing up to open for Status Quo on their final run of Frantic Four shows ahead of playing this year's Sonisphere festival.

Zoe Howe, who co-wrote Looking Back At Me with the guitarist in 2012, says in the Daily Express: "Well, cancer, you did not realise who you were dealing with, did you? We're all so thrilled that Wilko is still here that maybe we dare not question why - but I have a theory.

"Since he went public with his diagnosis the tidal wave of love that followed was so powerful, it can only have made a positive difference to his health, whether from the many messages he has received or the sheer force of affection beaming directly to him at shows." more.
