Sad news that Wilko Johnson passed away.A local legend in the Southend & Canvey island areas,they don't make many like him!

Sort of, Family had a 'shack' on Canvey...loved it, we went there in the summer until it got flogged for a villa in spain instead, some shack, some Villa!
I only knew Wilko through the thriving pub circuit that pre-dated Punk, I used to live right round the corner from the Kensington, which was the best venue to play, it had the prettiest girls.

Canvey! But there are a few of those shacks left,I've worked on one or two over the years & they certainly are thrown together!

Yes one of the good guys, went to see him when he played with Ian Dury back when I was 17 at Hammersmith Palais. A true guitar innovator and all round nice bloke...
