GoT: Wilko Johnson (Sir Ilyn Payne;) diagnosed with terminal cancer


quote:

WILKO JOHNSON – IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT I am very sad to announce that Wilko has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer of the pancreas. He has chosen not to receive any chemotherapy. He is currently in good spirits, is not yet suffering any physical effects and can expect to enjoy at least another few months of reasonable health and activity. He has just set off on a trip to Japan; on his return we plan to complete a new CD, make a short tour of France, then give a series of farewell gigs in the UK. There is also a live DVD in the pipeline, filmed on the last UK tour. Wilko wishes to offer his sincere thanks for all the support he has had over his long career, from those who have worked with him to, above all, those devoted fans and admirers who have attended his live gigs, bought his recordings and generally made his life such an extraordinarily full and eventful experience. Thank you. Robert Hoy (Manager)


I hate to hear this and thought he fit the character pretty well from what I pictured in the books. Props for him deciding to just take a bow.

Props to him for going out with vacations and rock concerts instead of hospital beds.
He should just see how much coke he can do without sleeping
