Interview (Dutch): “Scott (Walker) liked it when I got lost in the music.” – Vrij Nederland


David Kleijwegt of Holland’s Vrij Nederland magazine talks to Gavin.

On working with Scott Walker:

“It was quite an honour. But at the same time it was one of the toughest gigs I’ve ever played. I sang accompanied by a 40-men and a band of 15. There were dancers, and a strict choreography. It was all very ambitious. On top of that, the music, from his last two CDs, was very abstract. I often had no idea of the key or pitch. I had nothing to hold on to, but Scott liked it best when I got lost in the music.”
