68-year-old singer-songwriter, Scott Walker, has always been ahead of his time both lyrically and musically. Before it was considered cool to write rock ‘n roll about religious matters, Walker was writing songs like “The Plague” which talked about the unfair psychological conditions of life–which felt like the physical torment of a plague:

“And everyday I’ve got to fight the plague/How can I live an hour like this/when anguish strikes me like a fist”
