Walker influenced David Bowie bigtime, about as much as Syd Barrett, I'd venture. Bowie covered Walker's "My Death" at most of his concerts during the Ziggy Stardust period.

"My Death" was a Jacques Brel song. Scott Walker just covered it.

There's the sea of mediocrity, there's several poking their heads above the water, there's a genius or three, and then there's Scott Walker.

Scott Walker's recording of Jacques Brel's "Jackie" off Scott 2 is a great track. Amazing he got away with those lyrics in 1968.
