Hip over, for now – Roger, wilco

Be the 1st to vote.

The hip-la over Gord’s cancer and his last tour is now over – and by all accounts the concerts were a great success.

Let’s hope his final, terminal days are full of wealth and happiness.

Perhaps he will draw strength from a fellow rocker’s cancer cure miracle from over the pond.

Wilko Johnson became the miracle man of when he survived terminal cancer.

He faced the illness head on, went on a “farewell” tour and only got a second opinion when he was still alive two months after doctors said he should be dead.

Things went so well for Wilco that he dumped his old wife and re-booted with a 35 year old.

In an emotional, frank interview, the star also reveals how he cheated on late wife Irene over their 40-year marriage and his lovers included current partner Yuriko Daikoku.

His tumor was big – as a baby. Interesting numerology. It took 9 hours to remove all 7-11 of it.

In April 2014 he had his pancreas, spleen, part of his stomach and part of his small and large intestine removed in a nine-hour operation at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge.

Surgeon Emmanuel Huguet, who removed the 7lb 11oz tumour, said: “It’s no exaggeration to say Wilko’s been taken to the limit of what a human being can take.

There are many stories of regular schmucks faking cancer. They’re just in it for the money, though.

Rich rockers wouldn’t be in it for the money, would they?

  1. UNreal

    It is remarquable how lifetime actors always will get work. If we look at the career of rock-stars we unfortunately find that these mostly are created entities too,,, So the only “real” aspect of Wilko Johnson might be argued to be his acting abilities and that he also played a part when he was a Dr. Feelgood guitarist…

    On the cancer PR front, another star,Shannen Doherty had a single mastectomy this spring, and she was lucky that her dog “Bowie” discovered it ! I guess at 45 there are just not that many roles an actress will be offered, but enrolling in a MCP (Medical Celebrity Program) clearly is an option to re-start her career and garner attention. In Shannen Doherty’s case they just so happens to throw in a trial too for good measure…

    As for “Hipping Over”, Good Morning America anchor Lara Spencer just did a total hip replacement,,, or did she ?
