Scott Walker: ‘Lights of Cincinnati’ (TV performance, 1969)
I’m on Gary’s Facebook now.
It looks like John took this arm wrestling thing quite seriously. Scott didn’t. And why do people (as in journalists) keep insisting that Scott never smiles? Evidently, he even laughs. You can hear it in his interviews as well. Imagine that. He’s so clearly a sweetie, but they go out of their way to paint him as a dark, shadowy figure. You would think that seeing the contrast between him as a person and the music he makes would actually add to the mystery…
Scott Walker observing people: “This chap’s an inspiration for some lyrics.”
