Walker Brothers

The Walker Brothers were an American pop group of the 1960s and 1970s that included Scott Engel (eventually known professionally as Scott Walker), John Walker (born John Maus, but using the name Walker since his teens) and Gary Leeds (eventually known as Gary Walker). After moving to Britain in 1965, they had a number of top ten albums and singles there, including the No. 1 chart hits “Make It Easy on Yourself” and “The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine (Anymore)”, both of which also made the US top 20. In between the two was the lesser US hit “My Ship is Coming In”.

Formed in 1964, they adopted the ‘Walker Brothers’ name as a show business touch even though the members were all unrelated — “simply because we liked it.” They provided a unique counterpoint to the British Invasion by achieving much more success in the United Kingdom than in their home country, a period when the popularity of British bands such as The Beatles dominated the U.S. charts.
