Wilko Johnson / Roger Daltrey are appearing on
Wilko Johnson and Roger Daltrey will combine for a one-off date at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on February 25th, celebrating the release of their new collaboration ‘Going Back Home’.
The record will arrive on March 10th through the resurrected Chess label and was recorded at Yellow Fish in Uckfield with Johnson’s touring band and producer Dave Eringa.
Johnson, former guitarist with pub rock pioneers Dr Feelgood, was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer in 2013. Daltrey will donate royalties from the album to a teen cancer charity.
As lead singer of The Who, one of the most influential rock bands of all time, Roger has notched up over 100 million record sales – including ten UK top 10 studio albums and thirteen UK top 10 singles, such as seminal classics ‘My Generation’, ‘Pinball Wizard’, and ‘Happy Jack’ amongst many others; as well as scoring four UK top 40 studio albums as a solo artist in his own right. Roger has also been winner of a string of prestigious awards and accolades in his 52 year career, including a Grammy lifetime achievement award for outstanding artist significance in music, a British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors Gold Badge Award for special and lasting contributions to the British entertainment industry, and even a CBE for services to Music, The Entertainment Industry and Charity. As a member of The Who, Roger was inducted in to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990 and the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005.

The original Dr Feelgood guitarist, Johnson’s choppy guitar style and interesting dress sense kept pub-rock rocking the pubs during the 1970s. Following a stint with Ian Dury and The Blockheads, the Wilko Johnson Band was formed with ex-Blockhead Norman Watt-Roy on bass and Dylan Howe on drums, adding up to one of the most exciting r’n’b bands in the world today.
