I was saddened to hear of the death of Wilko Johnson tonight. My involvement with him was only slight, but I found him a friendly, funny man, and an unusual and unique guitarist. I had a Chicago-style Blues band for 20 years, just playing local gigs. we supported Wilko in Blackpool, and he used our gear. Norman Watt Roy his bass player took a memorable solo that night, and Wilko was on fire. We supported him again a couple of years later, and I had the pleasure of interviewing him for the BBC. We talked about Wilko's great hero Mick Green of the Pirates (Johnny Kydd & The Pirates). I later interviewed Mick Green as well thanks to Wilko. His real name was John Wilkinson, and he used to be a teacher.
Rest in peace Wilko and thanks for some great memories. We miss you.
Nick Dow

I saw him in Edinburgh a couple of years ago. One of my best nights.
RIP Wilko

I can only echo Nick Dow's sentiments. Absolutely loved the music and the playing of Wilko Johnson. The gigs I attended were all superb. R.I.P.

RIP, he wanted to play like Mick Green but somehow developed his own version.
