American musician who joined Steve Miller in "The Marksman" in 1959, doing vocals and tambourine while learning to play the guitar. They did R'n'B tours with a world tour that stretched over 1965-67. In late 1970, the "Boz Scaggs Band" signed with Columbia with a debut LP in May 1971.
In 1983, Scaggs took a hiatus and opened a restaurant in San Francisco. He returned with a comeback album in July 1988, "Other Roads." With tours, benefits and recordings, he won a Grammy in 1976 for "Lowdown." His hits include "Miss Sun," 1980.
His son, Oscar, died of a heroin OD in January of 1999 at a known dealers house after a short stint in rehab. Boz is quoted, "Nothing is harder than losing a child."
In 2001, he put out his first album since 1997, "Dig."
