This man affected everyone who heard his story, and all followers of Canvey Island's Dr Feelgood. The words he uttered on national television were incredible, soul redeeming and inspirational. On hearing the news that cancer had given him only months to live, his whole being transformed to optimism and wonder. Wonder at the gift of life. Amazingly, Wilko has made a truly joyous recovery and is touring once more.
I have painted his heroic face out among the stars, where we came from and where we will doubtless return..."and I realised you are alive and you are existing in the moment...nothing mattered."
