Rockers We’ve Lost in 2012: Scott McKenzie

Folk singer Scott McKenzie was found dead in his home of an apparent heart attack in Los Angeles on Sunday, Aug. 19. The 73-year-old is best known for his 1967 hit ‘San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair),’ the iconic ode to the summer of love written by long time friend of John Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas.

In 1988, McKenzie would hit the charts once again, this time as co-writer of the Beach Boys’ ‘Kokomo.’

Next: Bill Tillman of Blood, Sweat & Tears
