Wilko Johnson: Sole ambition was to finish farewell tour

Musician Wilko Johnson has told BBC Hardtalk’s Stephen Sackur that his sole ambition was to complete a farewell tour after being diagnosed with “terminal” cancer in 2012.

The former Dr Feelgood guitarist was initially given 10 months to live after rejecting chemotherapy, but had radical surgery to remove the tumour in 2014.
