Synopsis

The Walker Brothers - John, Scott and Gary - were one of the biggest pop groups of the 1960s. Gifted with stunning voices and drop-dead-gorgeous looks, their appeal was irresistible. Massive hits such as 'Make It Easy On Yourself' and 'The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore' have become evergreen classics. At a time when the UK ruled the musical world, the Walker Brothers were one of the few American acts to matter. Yet within three years, the group had imploded and its members embarked on solo careers. In the 1970s they got back together again before lapsing into long years of silence - and then finally all three enjoyed a recent brilliant resurgence in their careers. For the first time, John and Gary Walker have broken their silence to reveal the truth about the group, and what led to the famous split and they lay bare the details of their private lives, including encounters with the other stars they met along the way, such as Walt Disney, Humphrey Bogart, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix. They tell what it was like to live in the glare of publicity and under siege by fans, and what the enigmatic Scott Walker was really like. Forget all you have read or heard about The Walker Brothers - this is the truth at last!
