John Walker of 60s Band, The Walker Brothers: Make It Easy on Yourself
It saddens me to report the death of John Walker. For so many of us the Walker Brothers were very popular with their two big hits: Make It Easy On Yourself and the Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine Anymore. Along with the distinctive lead voice of Scott Walker, the threesome were very popular in England and the U.S.
The Guardian Uk reported he died of liver cancer:
The official John Walker website said it was with “deepest sadness” that it had to report the musician passed away.
“He was a beloved husband, brother, father, grandfather, friend, and artiste,” it added.
The band’s first UK number 1 single in 1965 (number 16 in the US). It was also the opening track on their debut album, “Take It Easy With The Walker Brothers”. A Burt Bacharach/Hal David all-time classic.
