Allan Testot-newick… R.I.P. Scott Walker ..

Pete Fisher… Sad news…I have his first four solo albums, which are not exactly easy listening, but amazing and very ambitious pieces of work, and unlike anything else that was around at the time…

Alan Esdaile… Very talented man with many brilliant tracks over the years. Very sad news.

Noel Garland… What a voice. RIP Scott.

Hazel Woolford… One of the greatest singers

Janet Rennie… Such a fabulous voice

Andy Ives… Rest peacefully Scott
