WESTCLIFF-ON-SEA, England (AP) - Living has been full of surprises for Wilko Johnson. So has dying.
Four decades in the rock `n' roll trenches have brought the British guitarist obscurity and fame, followed by turmoil, more obscurity and rediscovery. Now the greatest rock star you may not have heard of - songwriter for rabble-rousing 1970s band Dr. Feelgood - is embarking on a farewell tour. Unlike some musical goodbyes, this one is permanent. Late last year, Johnson was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer and told he had just months to live.
