We've lost a great singer and a great character. My favourite non-musical memory of Scott Walker was when he burst into a cinema in the middle of The Ten Commandments and asked "Has God been on yet?" He was politely shown the door. LOL

"Love Her" is my favourite Walker Brothers song (a Jack Nitzsche production I believe). May he rest in peace.

I'll have to check this out and other Walker Brothers songs . Am only familiar with "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore."

Jack Nitzsche arranged Love Her but it (and the other three tracks the Walker Brothers cut in LA before going to London) were produced by Nick Venet so thatís one thing Scott had in common with our guys.

Jackie and Matilde were my two favourites, stunning vocals and the arrangements were sublime.

I have to mention Joanna written by Britain's own Jackie Trent and Tony Hatch ... : - )

It never dawned on me that Jackie Trent was a songwriter (they say you learn something new every day).

I remember her from her gorgeous hit of 1965, "Where Are You Now", which I now see she co-wrote!

Thanks for the memory, J. And rest in peace, Ms Trent.

Not only did Jackie Trent cowrite Scottís highest charting solo 45, she also was the first to cover one of his songs....
