Personalities | Dr. Feelgood | Seventies | Rock

(Vocal/instrumental group, 1971–present)

A London rhythm & blues band that emerged from the pub rock scene in 1974, Dr. Feelgood’s back-to-basics approach foreshadowed punk. Comprising Lee Brilleaux (Lee Collinson, vocals), Wilko Johnson (John Wilkinson, guitar), John B. Sparks (bass) and John ‘The Big Figure’ Martin (drums), their live album Stupidity was a 1976 chart topper. Brilleaux remained as the only original member until his death in 1994 when the band continued, in name only, with other musicians.
