  1. there is hardly a duff tune in the whole scott canon up to scott 4. his big torch song tony bennett impersonations do it best for me but this is a smasher too

  2. Here it is again, the myth perpetrated a long time ago,, and carried on. even by music jouralists who should know better…. John Maus and John Stewart are completely different people. John Stewart was a friend of Scott, They recorded as the Dalton Brothers. The Walker Brothers came into being after that. John Maus/Walker and Scott got together in 64 and the name Walker Brothers started then. John Stewart did come over to the UK on Scott’s request after they were successful and worked behind the scenes with Scott. Yes he did write the song, no Nick Venet didn’t produce it, it was recorded in England at the Phillips recording studios under the guidance of Scott Walker, who had a good idea of the Spector production ideas and used them to great effect. Scott had a lot of control over those early sessions. Getting back to John Walker he is not exactly the forgotten Walker… he has toured the UK twice in the last 3 years on the “Silver 60’s Nostalgia tour, Not my thing,,,,, didn’t go, but it seems he is not forgotten.

  3. Well, thanks (??) Geraldine. I certainly meant no insult to Mr. Maus. Not sure I should have known better (not a lot of info out there on the Walkers), but I’ll certainly try to do better in future.

  4. Hi Walker fans. Especally Scott Walker fans.
    Has anyone out there got any info on Scott Walker. I mean like personal stuff. Like did Scott get married etc. Is he married now. I would be very grateful for any snippets of info. As really love this guy.
    love and peace
