Saddened to hear the news that Scott Walker passed away today, one of the brightest stars in the firmament of this crazy business we’re in.

Through the 1960’s & 70s his work as a torch singer was exemplary hit after hit with brave renditions of Jacque Brel, Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht songs that shook the foundation of the then popular music radio with their controversial content, he then started to change styles turn his back on the commercial and follow the beat of his own drum creating work to challenge and fulfil his artistic drive, admired by so many he was inspirational to me personally having loved his music and wonderful baritone from the beginning.

RIP Scott Walker.
