One of my heroes, Wilko Johnson has died, aged 75. Very sad to see him go, although it was somewhat wonderful he made it to that age, having thought he was dying of pancreatic cancer several years ago. The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson is a wonderful documentary, and a fine tribute to a great rock guitarist. I'll cherish the memories of his great, spiky and energetic musical style.

Very sad. We were supposed to see him live a few years ago but hubby was poorly and we didn't go.

So sorry he finally lost his battle with this awful disease. Totally agree about the documentary. Loved his album with Roger Daltrey too.

Very sad- The other Julian Temple documentary- Oil City Confidential- is also well worth tracking down. plenty of Wilko talking to camera- coming over as very cultured, decidedly quirky and hugely engaging. His monologue about getting sacked form his teaching job was hilarious

He was a dude... The documentary was an insight into his musical life and it took an unexpected turn when he was told his farewell tour might not be his last
