The musician Wilko Johnson has been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/musi ... ancer.html
His music was a huge part of my life when I was growing up. I saw him several times and he was always great. Very sad.
(I debated about posting because I thought non-UK people might not be aware of him, but then I remembered he had a small part in the Game of Thrones tv series, so maybe people know him from there?)
