Wilko Johnson with very special guest Glenn Tilbrook on Thursday 11th April 2019

Following Wilko’s cancer recovery, the original Dr Feelgood guitarist has enjoyed a rousing return to the live arena recently, including a Number 1 album with Roger Daltrey and playing a sold out show at The Royal Albert Hall to mark his 70th birthday.

Heavily influenced by Mick Green, Wilko employs a finger-style, chop-chord strumming action (the ‘stab’, as he describes it). This allows for chords and lead to be played at the same time, giving a fluency and a distinctive sound very unlike the cleaner swat of a pick.

With this economical sound, coupled with that black-suited scowling look and the yards he covered across the stage (pausing only to twist the guitar lead out from under his feet), it’s no wonder that Wilko became one of the major guitar heroes from his era.

Following a stint with Ian Dury & The Blockheads in the 80′s he eventually formed The Wilko Johnson Band with ex-Blockhead Norman Watt-Roy on bass. Also featuring Dylan Howe on drums, the trio have become one of the most exciting r’n’b bands in the world today.

With very special guest Glenn Tilbrook

As one of our most cherished songwriters, singers and guitarists – not to mention an in-demand and endlessly endearing live performer – Glenn Tilbrook has more than earned his place at pop’s top table. Forty-five years after he first linked up with Chris Difford to form the band that became the evergreen much-loved Squeeze, his unwavering devotion to playing live, (and the out-and-out joy that he patently derives from it) shows no signs of diminishing any time soon.
