Dr Feelgood are a British pub rock band formed in 1971. The band’s name derives from a slang term for heroin or for a doctor who is willing to overprescribe drugs.
It is also a reference to a 1962 record by the American blues pianist and singer Willie Perryman (also known as “Piano Red”) called “Dr. Feel-Good”, which Perryman recorded under the name of Dr. Feelgood & The Interns.
The song was covered by several British beat groups in the 1960s, including Johnny Kidd & The Pirates.
Wilko Johnson was regularly featured in Rotosound advertising throughout the bands heyday !
