Even though the Walker Brothers finally disbanded back in 1978 No 1 hit songs like Make it Easy on Yourself and The Sun Aint Gonna Shine (Anymore) remain all-time pop classics. In the mid 60s their fan club in the UK was larger than that of the Beatles.

Testament to their eternal popularity has been John Walker's tour of the UK (as part of the Solid Silver Sixties tour) where he has taken part in an astonishing 67 concerts throughout the country playing to full houses and hugely enthusiastic audiences.

Scott, John and Gary were three unrelated US musicians who formed a band in Los Angeles in 1964. Drummer Gary felt their style might go down well in London so they moved over here in 1965 and shortly got their first recording contract with Philips. From there they were jettisoned into superstar success with top ten hits and countrywide tours.
With alternate chapters by John and Gary the book tells among other things of crazy fans and publicity stunts, the ups and downs of touring, and touring with some of the great names of the 60s including Lulu, Jimi Hendrix, Cat Stevens, Englebert Humperdinck, Roy Orbison and Marc Bolan.
The book is published by John Blake Publishing at �18.99.
