A one-off if ever there was one.
That’s really sad news. I remember he wasn’t well a few years ago. When he played with The Blockheads he added another layer of funk. RIP Wilko.
That’s so sad to hear, saw it on the news
It makes me slightly hesitant to recommend this from an emotional journey perspective (without giving away any spoilers) … given the news today
… but, apart from being an amazing individual and the template for any self respecting post punk guitarist this is an amazing watch whether you know him or not
Sharp dressed, sharp moves and sharp tone
Sharp mind as well
RIP Wilko. One of my favourite guitar players.
Honest. No bullshit.
I was just about to post that. Fascinating insight
Rest easy, legend
Sad news. I remember discovering him via the Old Grey Whistle Test DVDs that came out probably 20 years ago (Christ!) and just thought “wow”.
Still, to get the best part of a decade after having been told he had 9 months to live isn’t shabby at all.
A towering influence on quite a few artists
