In late 2012, Dr. Feelgood guitarist Wilko Johnson was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given 10 months to live. Refusing chemotherapy, he went on a farewell tour and did everything he'd always wanted to do — including calling on his friend and lead singer of The Who, Roger Daltrey, to make that album they'd always talked about. The result is an album of Johnson classics, Going Back Home, which has been in the British Top 20 since it was released earlier this year.

During this session for World Cafe, Daltrey performs a few songs from Going Back Home.
