Johnson and Dr Feelgood were an influence on the English punk movement. Paul Weller has said of Johnson: "Wilko may not be as famous as some other guitarists, but he's right up there. And there are a lot of people who'll say the same. I can hear Wilko in lots of places.

During the October of 2013 – that fateful, 'final' tenth month – he headed with his band (bassist Norman Watt-Roy and drummer Dylan Howe, plus guests Mick Talbot and Steve Weston) into the studio with Roger Daltrey to make the album Going Back Home. They'd been talking about making a record together for several years but the diagnosis hastened things somewhat. Better do it quick,' as Wilko put it. No one could have imagined that the album would go gold, getting into the top 3 of the UK album charts, the most successful record of Johnson's career.
Reminding the world of what he does best, Wilko gathers 25 recordings made between 2008-2012, accompanied by former Blockheads bassist Norman Watt-Roy and drummer Dylan Howe. The trio grab catalogue highlights by the scruff of the neck and give them an invigorated kicking, reaching back to Dr Feelgood on Roxette and She Does It Right, while piling into roughhouse diamonds, including Barbed Wire Blues, Some Kind Of Hero and Out In The Traffic. All ram home the fact that no one does it like Wilko. Immaculate and irreplaceable. Classic Rock Newsletter.
