This DVD is a rare glimpse into the creative world of the most enigmatic figure in rock history, and will trace the undeniable impact he has had on popular music through casual interviews with some of his biggest, highest profile fans. We explore his fascinating trajectory, from jobbing bass player on LA's Sunset Strip, to his domination of the British pop scene that began in the swinging summer of 1965, to his transformation into a composer of true genius; an uncompromising and serious musician working at the peak of his powers. At age 63, over the course of 2005, he went into the studio again, working on what could be his greatest artistic statement yet.

The first-ever documentary film about Scott Walker's career and music, tracing his evolution from a session player on LA's Sunset Strip to his meteoric rise to fame during London's Swinging 60's as lead singer of The Walker Brothers and as a brooding, crooning solo artist, through to his current status as one of the most astonishing and important musicians of the last 30 years. The film subverts the typical rock-doc narrative to deliver not just the journey of a songwriter but a meditation on the creative process itself.
