Wilko Johnson – De La Warr Pavilion Bexhill 2nd March 2019

The original Dr Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson is performing here at DLWP on Saturday 2 March!

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 economic 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, Wilko became one of the guitar heroes of the era.

Alan Pepper… Is that Norman Watt Roy ( ex blockhead ) in the lineup ?

Tony Ham… Yes it is, Wilko used to be in The Blockheads.

Paul Bryant… Looks like him.

Tony Ham… It is, seen them a few times in recent years. I took this when they played in Rye.

Mike Curtis… And support act………Glenn Tilbrook!!! With a bit of luck a couple of local lads will turn up – Chris Difford to play with Glenn, and Roger Daltrey with Wilco?
