The sun ain’t gonna shine anymore

For the last few days I’ve been binging on Scott Walker’s songs and videos, from his early teen idol phase through his Jacques Brel / Mort Shuman period and on through his radical later reinventions creating music that can perhaps be best described as “Bowie meets Stockhausen”.

I can’t even think of anyone else to compare to Scott Walker. He was truly unique, absolutely fearless in his approach to musical exploration, and impossible to categorize, with a voice that was simply sublime.

Sadly, Scott passed away earlier this week. But I am sure that his incomparable music will live on, to shine its radiant light upon the world for centuries to come.
