Scott had a monster hit in the sixties
This song has always been one of my favorites and to this day I get homesick when I hear it. Even though I've been in Texas lmost 20 years it will NEVER be home. Home will always be the SF Bay Area.It's where most of my family lives and where I found lifelong friendships with a few people that have been very important to me. Scott McKenzie had a fantastic voice and he was so much more than that one song - but if you are going to be known for one song, San Francisco is not a bad one at all. Remember this one?
Earlier this year we also lost Jon Lord of Deep Purple.
Best version ever of this classic song.
Please excuse me for being maudlin - it's just that music mean a lot to me and each of these losses hurts - luckily the music still lives.
