An American singer, songwriter and guitarist, William Royce “Boz” Scaggs is known for his time playing with the Steve Miller Band in the 1960’s. Today, he continues to write and record music and tour on his own under the moniker of Boz Scaggs.
Here are a few things you might not have known about this talented musician:
- Born in Canton, Ohio, he was given the nickname “Bosley” by a schoolmate when he was just a kid. Later shortened to “Boz,” the name stuck.
- He learned to play the guitar when he was just 12 years old and met Steve Miller soon after.
- Boz was the very first vocalist for Miller’s band, The Marksmen, and the two of them attended college together at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. “I idolized Steve,” says Boz. “To me, he was so much older and wiser. It sounds corny, but he was like my hero.”
Although his days with the Steve Miller Band are over, Boz still tours today at 68 years old for a loyal following of fans.
