Why they might be annoying
They weren't brothers and none of them were named Walker; instead they chose their name 'simply because we liked it.'
They were considered part of the British invasion despite being Americans.
They had relocated to England partly to avoid the draft.
After they broke up over 'artistic differences,' Scott sought refuge in a monastery.
'Make It Easy On Yourself' was sampled by Ash for their single 'Candy.' (2001)
Why they might not be annoying
'Make It Easy On Yourself' and 'The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine (Anymore)' both hit #1 in Britain and made the US top 20.
Scott's soulful vocals and their records' 'Wall of Sound' production earned comparisons with the Righteous Brothers.
Scott developed a large cult following as a solo act.
'The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine (Anymore)' was used in the promotional trailers for AMC's 'The Walking Dead.'
