Scott - I miss you
My mom has found much peace in Scott's music recently. She's undergoing cancer treatment and calls him her "chemo buddy." I just wanted to let you all know he is still bringing much love and light to the world.

May it be, "San Francisco," The Summer of Love, and Scott McKenzie.
My life was forever changed the day I heard the song, those summer days and by an enchanting voice...
Thank you, Scott McKenzie
Scott, c'était la personnalisation de ce rêve américain des hippies des années 60 (non pas qu'il ait été forcément d'accord avec cela). Ces jeunes qui voulaient réenchanter le monde, un type de monde maintenant indispensable à la survie de l'humanité : frugal, aimant et attentionné, simple, écologique.
Cette Amérique-là a (seulement pour l'instant, j'espère) disparu, en proie maintenant à la guerre, à la suspicion, à l'effondrement moral, économique et financier...
Scott, R. I. P. , grâce à toi, je ne désespère pas... toi et tes chansons restent à jamais jeunes et émouvants...
Around 1967 (1968 ?), in Paris, my young and beautiful mother had bought us the "San Francisco" single (I was 9 at the time). This song moves me whenever I hear it...
Nevertheless, the song, which strikes very, very deep in myself (to the point of bringing up my tears) is "What's the difference ?"... in the two versions : one almost philosophical, the other vibrant with this kind of juvenile hope... I have lost !
Scott was the embodiement of the hippie american dream of the '60s (not that he was quite OK with that, for sure) . All those young people who wanted to re-enchant the world, a kind of world sorely needed now : frugal, loving and caring, gentle and simple, ecological.
This America has (only for the time being, I hope) disappeared, prey to the wars, the suspicion and a vast moral, economical and financial collapse.
Thanks to you, I don't quite despair yet... you and your songs are forever young and moving...
ich hätte so gerne etwas von deiner gedenkfeier erfahren.
vielleicht kann hier jemand etwas veröffentlichen .alles liebe gudrun
Back in the early 60's I met Scott at Jo Blondheimn's home in Atlantic Beach. Fl We played guitar, sang together and he was a very nice guy. Not knowing that four years later he would have a smash hit in San Francisco. Wish I could have seen him again before his passing.
