Miracle man Wilko Johnson is adamant he is not angry about spending a year facing 'certain' death and insists the experience was "marvellous" and one he would "recommend".
The Dr. Feelgood rocker was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer and given just months to live in January last year (13) but he declined treatment and instead headed out on a farewell tour.
However, his health showed few signs of declining, and following a drastic nine-hour operation in April (14), during which several organs were removed, Johnson was declared cancer-free.
The musician was delighted with the news, and he now views the entire 15 months as life-changing for the better.
He tells Q magazine, "I had a whole year of believing that my life was about to come to an end. But it's been a marvellous experience. I recommend it because you really feel what it's like to be alive. In the middle of that year, I could see things so clearly. Now I'm trying to get my head around the idea that I'm not going to die imminently and I'm going to carry on. It's wonderful that people are being so supportive."
