As vocalist with the Walker Brothers, Scott Walker introduced UK audiences to “Make It Easy on Yourself,” which became a No. 1 hit in 1965. While his popularity diminished over time, his creative output never waned and he became a cult artist in the 90s and 00s with a series of challenging, increasingly abstract records. RIP Scott.
