William Royce "BOZ" SCAGGS.. ...6/8/1944----.... born In Canton, Ohio- is an American singer, songwriter and guitarist. He gained fame in the 1960s as a guitarist and occasional lead singer with the Steve Miller Band and in the 1970s with several solo Top 20 hit singles in the United States, along with the #2 album, Silk Degrees. Scaggs continues to write, record music and tour.
With the Steve Miller Band for their first two albums, Boz Scaggs carved out an inimitable niche for himself and soared on his own with many hits starting in the 70's. A great concert from 2004. Rita Coolidge also did a very popular cover of this tune.
~Boz Scaggs also had a brief stint with the band The Other Side with Mac MacLeod and fellow American Jack Downing. Description from today-is-their-birthday.blogspot.com. I searched for this on bing.com/images
