Scott McKenzie dies; his 'San Francisco' caught flower-power wave
Singer Scott McKenzie worked with John Phillips of the Mamas & the Papas and had a 1967 hit with 'San Francisco .' The song is often described as a 'flower-power anthem,' but he was uncomfortable with being an icon to the movement.

Dontcha just hate it when somebody goes all off-topic? It is true that Scott and John Phillips ran in some of the same circles but what does the passing of Scott McKenzie have to do with either John or "Fucked Her Daddy When She Was An Adult" Mackenzie Phillips?
While we are adding unrelated topics to Topix, how about the fact that Scott & John knew Roman Polanski and were probably aquainted with Woody Allen as well? Creepy enuf for ya?
So, back to poor Scott. He was a great songwriter, not a one-hit-wonder at all. Even though he DIDN'T WRITE "San Francisco, Be Sure To Wear Some Flowers..." he did co-write the smash hit "Kokomo" for the Beach Boys later in their career as well.
Well, then again, upon reflection maybe he was pretty much the definition of a one-hit-wonder after all, but WHAT A ONE-HIT!!!! I hope you made sure to wear some flowers in yer hair, Scott! Love ya!!
