Scott McKenzie, who sang...

...the 1967 hit "San Francisco," died at age 73.

The song was actually written by John Phillips, a founder of the Mamas and the Papas, who had been a friend of McKenzie's since high school. McKenzie did, however, collaborate with Phillips, Mike Love and Terry Melcher to write the 1988 Beach Boys hit "Kokomo."
