John Walker

Former member of the Walker Brothers talks with BBC H&W's Tony Fisher...

John Walker talks to BBC Hereford and Worcester's Tony Fisher, over a Pie and a Pint, about his career and teaching guitar to the Beach Boys.

John changed his surname from Maus to Walker in 1963 when he was performing in California with Al 'Tiny' Schneider and Scott Engel under the name of The Walker Brothers Trio.

After a year, Tiny left the group and was replaced by Gary Leeds who convinced John and Scott to move to London, where they became the Walker Brothers.

The group had many hits through the 60's and 70's, including Make It Easy and a cover of Tom Rush's No Regrets.

John re-launched his solo career in 2000 with the album You, and his most recent release is called Just For You.
