    Scott "San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair)" McKenzie dead at 72

    I'd about decided to let the death of Scott McKenzie (Wiki) go unnoted - his only widely known release, after all, had seemed ingloriously kitschy from the day I first heard it, and his writing credit on the Beach Boys' odious 'Kokomo,' 21 years later, was hardly a plus - but the Guardian's great Jon Savage convinced me otherwise in his essay below:

    Scott McKenzie's San Francisco was a hippy anthem with a life of its own
    San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair)
    didn't reflect the particular sound of the city itself. Not that
    this mattered it was great pop and its idealism lives on

    It's worth a read at the link above
