David Walker (born 25 January 1945) is an English singer and guitarist who has been front-man for a number of bands; most notably The Idle Race, Savoy Brown, and, briefly, both Fleetwood Mac and Black Sabbath.


Early life

Walker was raised by his strict grandmother in a household where rock and roll was not allowed to be watched on television. His first experience with public singing came at a very young age at a Methodist church, where Dave volunteered to sing "Away in a Manger". As teenagers, Dave and his brother Mick formed a "backyard skiffle" group which played at weddings and youth gatherings.[1]
