...always coming back to you

Sighing over Scott Walker once again, after watching the documentary 30 Century Man (2006). Cameras are let into his studio for the first time (recording his '06 album The Drift). David Bowie, Johnny Marr, Brian Eno all confessing their love and his influence. It's the first time Scott has been interviewed so intimately. You get a sense of the depth of his marriage to his music, that he can be and do nothing else but create this extraordinary stuff. Although his style has drastically evolved - become more itself, one could say - I will always get chills listening to his solo work from the 60s/70s. It stops you up short. He really is one of the life-changers.

He's amazing, and the documentary was wonderful.
