16 år etter sin død er Johnny Cash igjen albumaktuell – sammen med Sheryl Crow
I går kom den triste nyheten om at Scott Walker er død, 76 år gammel.
Walker anses som en av de aller største stemmene i populærmusikken og etterlater seg en enorm musikalsk arv.
Like etter at nyheten ble kjent tidlig mandag morgen, publiserte flere kjente personer innlegg for å hylle det musikalske ikonet.
Radioheads Thom Yorke and produsent Nigel Godrich er blant dem, sammen med navn som Kelly Lee Owens, Boy George og Soft Cells Marc Almond, som var å se i 2006-dokumentaren «Scott Walker: 30 Century Man» sammen med blant andre David Bowie og Radiohead. Det skriver Pitchfork.

So very sad to hear that Scott Walker has passed away, he was a huge influence on Radiohead and myself, showing me how i could use my voice and words. Met him once at Meltdown, such a kind gentle outsider. He will be very missed. https://t.co/v33Ey91hbn

So very sad to hear about Scott Walker…. truly one of the greats.. so unique and a real artist. On my way to work on the first day of recording OK Computer I passed him riding his bike on Chiswick High Street.. and when I got to the studio Thom was holding a copy of Scott 4..

Wow. Goodbye Scott Walker, the biggest influence on David Bowie. A maverick and uncompromising artist. Loved by @MarcAlmond and myself. One of the peculiar greats!

Absolutely saddened shocked by the death of Scott Walker . He gave me so much inspiration so much I owe to him and modelled on him even down to my early S C hair cut and dark glasses . He cemented my love for Brel. He was enigmatic , mysterious and with some of his latter recordings , to me, infuriating. An absolute Musical genius , existential and intellectual and a Star right from the days of the Walker Brothers. So many of his songs will go round in my head forever. And that Voice. We lost Bowie now we’ve lost him. There is surely a crack in the Universe. Thank you Scott.
