The Walker Brothers enjoyed a string of hits that also included “Make It Easy on Yourself.” Scott Walker later went on to produce numerous songs, movie scores and a number of solo albums.
The Ohio-born Walker, who began his career as a session bass player, changed his name from Noel Scott Engel when he joined the Walker Brothers, also relocating to London.
The Walker Brothers were hugely popular in Britain at a time when the music scene was dominated by the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. They also enjoyed hits in the United States. He left the band to pursue a solo career when they were near their commercial peak.
As a solo artist, Walker released a number of well-received albums, and joined the Walker Brothers for a final album together in the 1980s. He also produced numerous albums for other artists and was seen as an influential figure in the music world.
