He will always be remembered for that one song. It was a song which caught the mood of its time. I know very little about the man who sang it.

Loved that song, then hated it. Then after a long time heard the beauty of his voice in it, loved it again. The flip side of the single had a song that meant a lot more to me at one time...

The song was written by John Phillips of the Mamas and Papas. For sure it struck a note in the so-called 1967 Summer of Love.

Scott certainly had a wonderful voice.
He appeared as a "Papa" in a later incarnation of "The Mamas and Papas".
His first album - which I think was produced by John Phillips - is worth a listen. A nice collection of interesting songs.

He and John Phillips were folkies first, as The Journeymen. Run, Maggie, Run-The Journeymen and still very much worth listening to. Also, John's daughter, McKenzie, is named after him.

If I remember correctly he did a pretty fair version of "Reason to Believe" on the B side.
RIP.

Here in NZ the B side of his 'San Francisco' was 'What's the Difference'.

'Hey friend wake up, I'm throwing rocks at your window pane....

What's the difference if we don't come back
Who's gonna miss us in a year or so...

That's the one Robyn. Young and feeling out of sync with everything around me, it was those two lines that spoke to me.

Ah, yes, I remember that song and loved to sing along whenever I heard it. Saw Scott on some TV program some years ago and of course he sang that song. He still sounded and looked good.
I never got to San Francisco but I did wear "flowers in my hair" in L.A. I always thought he had a really good voice. RIP Scott.

Widely believed, but not so. When Miss Phillips was born in 1959, Scott was still Philip Wallach Blondheim. In her bio, Miss Phillips says that McKenzie was a name from her mother's side of the family.

The opening bars of the song always send a shiver down my spine. One of the all-time classic pop songs.
