It was diagnosed as terminal then a different surgeon carried out a complex procedure which gave him a much better prognosis.

Anyway, gutted at his loss, saw him a number of times. Superb guitarist and a lovely guy. Think I'll re-watch Oil City Confidential tonight.

Very sad; seeing him with the Feelgoods, and later with his Solid Senders, was very memorable and enjoyable.

Yes, met him and Norman after a gig in Brighton in the 80s, what can you say? Brilliant and inspiring guitarist in brilliant and inspiring bands, and a lovely and inspiring bloke.

Very sad news. I am not old enough to have seen him play with Dr. Feel good but saw him play with Norman Watt Roy and Dylan Howe a few times. A great guitarist, great frontman and a very engaging personality.

RIP Wilko.
