Wilko Johnson is recording a farewell album with Roger Daltrey.
According to a report in the Mirror, the pair met recently at an awards show.
The Mirror story goes on to quote Johnson as saying: “They did tell me in January I’d be dead in October, but I may last into next year. I hope we’ll have something done before I go. There are a few more things I want to record. I wrote some songs right after getting this diagnosis. It won’t be morbid, though. I can’t have any truck with that. The music I want to continue to make, I think, generally should be a laugh not a cry. So there’s not going to be any cancer dirges.”
Johnson cancelled the final two shows of his farewell tour, which were due to take place in April.
