Quote: "Well, I haven't got a spleen, I haven't got a pancreas and I've only got half my stomach. So along with the three-kilo tumour they took out of me, I'm a lot lighter!" Veteran rocker Wilko Johnson laughs off the drastic surgery he underwent last year (14) to save his life following a terminal cancer diagnosis.
Fact: Terminally ill rocker Wilko Johnson has signed up to another festival this summer (14). The former Dr. Feelgood star, who was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer last year (13), is due to perform at T in the Park music festival in Scotland in July (14), just weeks after he is booked to perform at Britain's iconic Glastonbury festival in June (14).
Quote: "When I was diagnosed they gave me 10 months. But they can't cure this thing, so the illness will take its inexorable toll.

The star was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer in January (13).
Quote: "Elton John phoned me up the other day... 'Cos the reception in my house is so bad, the woman putting us in touch was standing in my front garden on her phone saying, 'Is Elton there?' I thought, 'What the hell are the neighbours going to think?' But we had a really good chat." Former Dr. Feelgood star Wilko Johnson counts Sir Elton John among his pals.
