This is the announcement we never wanted to make, and we do so, on behalf of Wilko’s family and the band, with a very heavy heart:
Wilko Johnson died peacefully in his sleep at his home in Westcliff On Sea on Monday evening, 21st November 2022. He was 75.
Thank you for respecting Wilko’s family’s privacy at this very sad time, and thank you all for having been such a tremendous support throughout Wilko’s incredible life.
RIP Wilko Johnson.
