Sad. Make It Easy On Yourself is one of the most beautiful songs written for a man. x

Although he was outshone by Scott's voice, his own voice was pretty good.

Another sad loss to music.

Very sad. He was a fine singer in his own right. I remember seeing the WBs live around '65/'66.

Me too, Robbo - I saw them in Leeds in 1965.

Very sad news. RIP John

Apparently Scott helped him with this song;i think you can hear the influence;it's such a lovely song.


May he rest in peace.

That's a shame. I saw him several times during the 1980s on one of the 'sixties tours'. Great.

apparently hed been battling liver cancer for the past 6 months but sadly didnt make it- those harmonies and the grand orchestration are one of those sounds you can hear and just know its the Walker Brothers- a rare achievement and sign of a true classic

RIP
