I was certainly saddened to hear of Scott Walker's death. His music inspred me and a host of others who appreciated well-sung pop music in the sixties. Their hit song "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" was in my repertoire for many years, and as a pop song goes, quite difficult to sing with any resemblance to Scott's rendition. I managed to get some nice comments on it during the band days.
He did a wonderful ballad called "Joanna," which blew me away. Walker was certainly as good as any crooner I can remember from the 50's-60's, if not better than most. His voice reminded me of Vic Damone a bit. Go and have a listen here:
Meanwhile, I hope all is well for you Joe, and for everyone on the Karma Scene!
