Collaboration in the works...
Wilko Johnson

Rhythm and blues is the hidden thread which runs through rock music - after all, without those R&B pioneers the Rolling Stones wouldn't even have a name.

The Who's Roger Daltrey knows a thing or two about R&B. So, too, does Dr Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson, and a new studio project brings the pair together.

In a short announcement, Roger Daltrey and Wilko Johnson have confirmed the release of joint album 'Going Back Home'. Due to be released on March 10th, the album contains a flurry of tracks from Johnson's back catalogue alongside a rendition of Bob Dylan's oft-overlooked track 'Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window'.

In addition to this, Roger Daltrey and Wilko Johnson have confirmed details of a one off show. Taking place on February 25th at London venue Shepherd's Bush Empire, tickets go on sale this Friday (January 24th).
