Good afternoon, Netizens…
For the sake of all the various gray-beards in our midst, Scott McKenzie, one of the voices of the 60's passed away today. Best known for his song, “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair),” which was released in May 1967. “If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair,” McKenzie gently sang in his biggest hit, written by his longtime friend John Phillips of the Mamas & the Papas.
I'm probably the sole surviving member of Inland Northwest society that ever heard him sing this song live in Golden Gate Park, let alone the only person in the Pacific Northwest who heard the Mamas & the Papas sing before their first blockbuster album.
Boy, how those times have changed!
