Wilko Johnson: “I’m doing another album with The Who’s Roger Daltrey” (Q345 Preview)

Wilko-johnsonIn the new, special, issue of Q not only does Wilko Johnson talk about the Album That Changed His Life, but he also answers posers from you the readers in this month’s Cash For Questions interview.

Along with discussing his recovery from cancer and the fate of his character in Game Of Thrones, he reveals that he and Roger Daltrey will be making a follow-up to their joint album Going Back Home.

Revealing something “unexpected” about The Who singer, Johnson explains how sessions for their first record together went.

“Roger was – not nervous – but it had been a long time since he’d done it without The Who," he notes. "He was often apprehensive about what we were doing. He would often go ‘I can’t do this’ and I found myself sometimes going, ‘Come on, you can!’ I thought this is ridiculous, it’s me sitting in this studio trying to encourage Roger Daltrey [laughs] but we did it!

“We will be doing another one and I think it might easier this time.”
