Boz Scaggs is a magnet for talent
Boz Scaggs is a nexus for some of the biggest names in classic rock. The singer-songwriter is a major figure of the genre in his own right, thanks to hits like “Lido Shuffle” and “Lowdown” and “Look What You’ve Done to Me.” But he’s also collaborated with numerous icons, starting with his stint as a member of The Steve Miller Band in the late 1960s (Scaggs and Miller met while attending private school together in Texas as teenagers). Scaggs played on the first two Steve Miller Band albums, and on his own early solo recordings, he worked with the future members of Toto and legendary guitarist Duane Allman of the Allman Brothers Band.
Later, after establishing his successful solo career, Scaggs teamed up with Donald Fagen of Steely Dan and Michael McDonald of the Doobie Brothers as part of the New York Rock and Soul Revue in the early ’90s, and joined them again as the Dukes of September Rhythm Revue starting in 2010.
In between, Scaggs has continued to release albums, including forays into jazz and soul. His most recent album, 2015’s A Fool to Care, features guest appearances from Lucinda Williams and Bonnie Raitt, proving once again that Scaggs is a magnet for the most talented collaborators.
