Boz Scaggs Out & About:
- Feb. 13, 1998 - James Brown, ``the hardest working man in show business,'' is in San Francisco for some R&R. He was at Slim's the other night and hung out with BozScaggs. ``Boz was like a little kid around his idol,'' a source reports. Brown turns 65 in May, and the Las Vegas Hilton is throwing a birthday bash. Brown will be rehearsing here for it . . . Blake Lawrence on the ``return'' of KDIA, now broadcasting on 1640 AM: ``As long as they merely relay a satellite format originating in Dallas, the `new' KDIA is hardly the community station it was. It's a relatively new facility in Vallejo, not Oakland, pretending it has a history of great service to the Bay Area.'' - Jerry Carroll
2003 - Thursday's opening night of the San Francisco Symphony's
Strauss/Beethoven concert drew an interesting mix of guests to the
Symphony box at Davies. On hand to watch Michael Tilson Thomas conduct
the orchestra were Brazilian photographer Sebastiao Salgado, Boz and
Dominique Scaggs, Mark and Susie Buell, Mr. and Mrs. Orville Schell,
Assemblyman Mark Leno, iron forge artist Angelo Garro, director and
screenwriter Davia Nelson (one of the "Kitchen Sisters," perhaps best
known for their NPR radio series "Lost and Found Sound").
- Nov. 20, 2004 - In
other news of carousing, Quincy Jones, Boz Scaggs, Patty Austin and
Nancy Pelosi attended a Nov. 19 surprise party Karen Caulfield threw
for her husband, Frank, at Shanghai 1930. His birthday cake was shaped
like Buddha, and Caulfield was given a painting of himself as Napoleon,
but although this was a high-profile event, neither the religious
leader nor the spunky French leader was able to make it. - Leah Garchik
- The guest list for Kay Kimpton and Sandy Walker's book party for novelist Jennifer Egan -- her book is "The Keep'' and her mother is Kimpton -- included former Mayor Willie Brown, movie director Chris and Monica Columbus, musician/club-owner Boz and Dominique Scaggs, cartoonist William and Lucy Hamilton and poet Michael and artist Amy McClure. Egan is rightly celebrated for her writing, but she's also well-connected. Her Los Angeles book party was hosted by Disney chief Bob Iger and his wife, Willow Bay, an old Egan schoolmate. - Leah Garchik
affairs: Austin Cregg, who is Huey Lewis' son, is interning at Rolling
Stone one day a week. He sits next to Austin Scaggs, who is Boz Scaggs'
son and writes the magazine's "Random Notes" column. Two Bay Area
rockers with two journalist sons, both of them Austins, three out of
four with double g's in their names -- the woo-woo-ities just keep on
coming. - Leah Garchik April 2005
Scaggs wanted to celebrate the birthday of keyboardist John Cleary, but
his own two clubs, Slim's and the Great American Music Hall, were busy.
So he presided over a jam at Connecticut Yankee on Potrero Hill, much
to the amazement of neighborhood folk who happened to show up there
Friday night. - Leah Garchik Aug. 2005
- The Mercedes-Benz of American Golf Courses- Posted in Fashion & Lifestyle on Friday, June 19th, 2009
Mercedes-Benz is known, simply, for being the best. Thats why you bought a Mercedes vehicle; you appreciate the finer things in life. You want to enjoy them, and experience all that they have to offer. Each Mercedes is, in some ways, one of a kind.
In the world of Golf, there is a course that has the same air of prestige as the Mercedes-Benz: The Presidio. The Presidio is 1,500 acres of natural countryside and forest surrounded by San Francisco. Its a place where, for 114 years, American icons have been playing golf.
Take, for example, some of the former players at the Presidio. Joe DiMaggio was, of course, one of the most famous members. Rock singer Boz Scaggs is a member, as well. One of the greatest golfers to be a member was W. Lawson Little Jr. In 1040, he won the U.S. Open, and won several other championships previously. In addition, the sheer proportion of Mercedes vehicles in the parking lot lets you know that it is some of the most accomplished citizens of the city that play here.
While you probably wont want to drive your Mercedes all the way to the Presidio, a Mercedes is the best way to get around here. If you want the very best there is, come see your local Mercedes-Benz dealer today.
