According to the National Post, Wilko Johnson—a living legend of rhythm and blues and member of UK band Doctor Feelgood, as well as Ser Ilyn Payne, the King’s Justice on Game of Thrones—has been diagnosed with untreatable cancer of the pancreas. His website states that Wilko is planning to focus on finishing a CD and preparing a farewell tour, having opted not to receive chemotherapy.
Tragic news to hear, but it sounds like he means to do the things he loves best, with those who matter most to him. We wish Johnson the best.
