Rock Pioneer Scott Walker Dies At 76

Scott Walker, one of the most enigmatic and influential figures in rock history, has died at the age of 76.

The US star found fame as a teen idol in The Walker Brothers, scoring hits with The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore and Make It Easy On Yourself.

But his dark baritone hinted at something deeper - and his darker, experimental solo albums tackled the complexities of love, sex and death.

Walker's death was confirmed by his current record label, 4AD.

In a statement, they called the singer "one of the most revered innovators at the sharp end of creative music".
