R.I.P. Scott McKenzie

Another hippie gone. Scott McKenzie gained fame for singing the song "San Francisco."  You might now the song about putting a flower in your hair. I discovered it via Led Zeppelin they added it to one of their "Whole Lota Love" medleys and I researched it and liked the song. Here you can take a listen..

You can read his obit here from the Telegraph. The song was written by John Phillips of The Mamas and the Papas. Scott co-wrote the Beach Boys song "Kokomo"

It is a shame he didn't really have another hit of his own..Here is about as close to it as he came..

May he R.I.P and may his songs live on...

Yeah, didn't know he passed. I always liked that song and am of course familiar with the others. Thanks for the heads up. Cheers.
