(Classic Rock) Wilko Johnson has undergone surgery to remove the cancerous tumor that's been threatening to kill him since 2012. He's cancelled all future appearances to recover from the procedure which has been described as "nothing less than a reprieve of a death sentence."

The former Dr Feelgood guitarist reported he'd been given ten months to live in January 2013 - but he's been continuing to play live and last month released an album with Roger Daltrey.

Doctors recently investigated the football-sized tumor more closely and discovered it to be a rare type which grows very slowly and is less aggressive than the usual kind - leading to the option of further treatment. more on this story
