Walker Blasts Breakdown Myth

Sixties singing legend SCOTT WALKER has rubbished the long-established myth he suffered a nervous breakdown during the height of his fame.

But the 63 year old insists he had ulterior motives: "It's true I went. But not for that reason. I went to learn Gregorian chants."
