A Deep Shade of Blue
I am reading 'A Deep Shade of Blue', a biography of the 60's icon, and ex-member of the Walker Brothers, Scott Walker. I knew nothing about him before, only a couple of his songs like 'The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore', the Walker Brothers world famous hit, and 'When Joanna Loved Me', one of the songs for Michael Sarne's film 'Joanna'. One reason for this is that there are not many Scott Walker TV archives available, considering he was one of the biggest artists in the 60's. Especially annoying is that the BBC TV series 'Scott' is almost impossible to track down. He was an exceptional musical talent from the golden age of swinging 60's.
