The Who singer Roger Daltrey, who released the album Going Back Home with Johnson in 2014, paid tribute to Wilko, writing: "More than anything Wilko wanted to be a poet. I was lucky to have known him and have him as a friend. His music lives on but there's no escaping the final curtain this time. So it's goodnight to Mad Carew, the uncompromising Bard of Canvey." - Roger
