Dr Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson will make an instore appearance at HMV’s Oxford Street branch next week to promote the album he has made with The Who‘s Roger Daltrey.
Johnson will sign copies of ‘Going Back Home’ on Tuesday (March 25) from 6pm. Fans must obtain wristbands for access to the event available on a first come first served basis with the purchase of ‘Going Back Home’. The album is released in the UK on March 24.
Meanwhile, a video for the song ‘I Keep It To Myself’, taken from the album, has been revealed. Watch it below.
Johnson and Daltrey decided to work together after striking up a friendship in 2010. The album features 10 Wilko Johnson original songs plus a cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?’. The album was recorded in the space of a week in November 2013, 10 months after Johnson was diagnosed with terminal cancer.
Johnson, 65, played lead guitar with Dr Feelgood from the band’s formation in 1971 until he left in 1977. During his stint, they scored a Number One album with their 1976 live LP ‘Stupidity’. After departing, Johnson played with The Blockheads for a brief spell in 1980 and released a succession of albums with The Wilko Johnson Band. More recently he appeared as an actor in the hit HBO show Game Of Thrones.
