Joe Walker From Breakfast At Sulimay’s Passed Away
Breakfast At Sulimay’s was a popular web series in which octogenarians at an assisted living facility shared their snap judgments on indie-rock favorites including Animal Collective, Bon Iver, Radiohead, MGMT, and Neon Indian. One of the stars of the program was Joe Walker of Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood, described by some as the series’ no-nonsense “Simon Cowell” figure. Kevin Gallagher of Woodshop Films/Scrapple TV, the company that produced Breakfast At Sulimay’s, emailed to let us know that Walker has died at the age of 90. His obituary tells the story of a full, rich life including World War II military service, Shakespearian acting, and lots of children and grandchildren.
