No Regrets is the fourth album by the American pop group The Walker Brothers. It reached number forty-nine on the UK Albums Chart and includes the single "No Regrets".

John Walker was the founding member of the Walker Brothers and still tours today. He has a record label and a publishing company, and operates a recording studio. He lives in Los Angeles.

No Regrets by Gary, John Walker. Sadly the Walker Brothers were hero's of mine during my teenage life, this book rambles on about how wonderful they were and how unlucky they were with their management company, mainly it has to be said the rambling are by Gary more than John, stay away from this tripe and just enjoy your memories instead.

The Walker's story as told by John and Gary but their respect for Scott, even though he isn't included in the interviews, is clear so despite the rumors surrounding their breakup they clearly liked each other. They really did become brothers.

It's terribly written, but the information is excellent. alleged "facts" are righted and the stories are priceless. This is the true inside story of one of the oddest chapters in rock history.

Great read. They were a big act in the 60's. I still listen to all their music.

Don't remember the Walker Brothers, Guess will have to check on it and possibly purchase an album.
I was more into Beach Boys, Jan and Dean etc.

I knew John Walker when I lived in London. I was therefore glad to see John and Gary collaborating on a book that would correct many of the untruths and speculations made in the biography of Scott Walker.

John and Gary take turns in narrating their story from their individual musical origins, up to the present time. Not surprisingly, their individual recollections differ slightly. But they do make specific points of correcting what they feel is incorrect in Scott's book. It's important to note that the band was originally started by John, not Scott, and that John and Scott shared the vocals equally, until it became apparent that Scott's voice was very marketable. And it was Gary who provided the impetus and financial backing for the three boys to go to England.

A few photos of their families are included. Like any fan, I would have liked to see more - but they do include some classics from their early days.

The book was a quick and easy read. Not exactly a literary masterpiece - hence the star deduction. But for any true Walker Brother fan, this book gives an enjoyable insight to the trio. It certainly made compelling reading.

(This is a review of the hardback)

This is a really interesting book, much better than I expected which has the unusual and interesting literary device of having 2 of the members of The Walker Brothers tell their stories separately but next too each other period wise which is really interesting as Gary Walker basically doesn't understand why the original break up took place while a few pages later John Walker does and goes into detail.

This book is super informative, telling a true story in detail that I don't believe was written about in full detail before. Two criticisms, one minor and the other major: Minor is that some of the details are too much info that no one needs to know like their first sexual experiences. Major is they do not talk about "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Any More" in any depth and detail- I would have loved to know who played the drums on all their records and what they thought about this classic.

All in all a very good book.
