Guitarist with the best live band I have ever seen

Believe he was also in game of thrones, which Iíve not seen due to having kissed a girl a few years ago

He was meant to be, then someone offered him some miracle cure that actually worked, for a while

Made some great music in those last few years though, RIPIP

Saw him a good few years ago with The Hamsters and John Otway. Brilliant gig.

This is so good, what a band they were

Love that Roxette track, never seen that clip before

Mind you, that thing him and the bass player do walking backwards and forwards gets a bit annoying after a bit

I know 2 fairly well known guitarists who have tried many times, and failed, to play rhythm and lead simultaneously like Wilko. They just canít do it

He was a true maverick

Shamelessly nicked from another forum


The show itself feels like some kind of Young Ones parody but music is spot on.

PlanetRock replayed their My Planet Rocks show with Wilko the other day...

https://planetradio.co.uk/planet-rock/player/201687394/

...and the first song he picked was by Jimi Hendrix, who also used to play rhythm and lead at the same time. Watching the video earlier I noticed Wilko uses the same technique as Jimi of wrapping his thumb around the top of the fret board to play the bass notes in the chords, leaving a spare finger for the more widdly bits.
