Make Wilko Johnson and Roger Daltrey number one this weekend!

Wilko Johnson and Roger Daltrey's superb collaborative album 'Going Back Home' is currently sitting at number 2 in the midweek charts, one place behind the latest X Factor nobody. I don't think I need to explain why guitar hero Wilko deserves a number one album more than whoever Simon Cowell's latest puppet is. An utterly inspiration figure, Johnson's terminal illness has not prevented him from blowing audiences away with some terrific gigs, and now this fantastic album which was recorded with The Who frontman last year in 2013. 

While Datrey's vocals are powerful and spot on, it's Wilko who steals the show as he gets stuck into riff after riff and delivers a brilliant set of no-nonsense RnB crackers. A number one record for this musical legend would be a fitting gift, and also a reminder to the industry that manufactured karaoke bullshit is no substitute for real music. Go out an buy the album via the links below...   



Thank the guitar god that is Wilko for all he's given us. What a man.
