San Francisco singer Scott McKenzie took his stage name from Scottish Terrier

RIP, Scott McKenzie who sang the flower power anthem, San Francisco. According to the BBC’s obituary, the singer changed his name from Philip Wallach Blondheim after complaints that his surname was “unpronounceable, and comments by comedian Jackie Curtis that he looked like a Scottie dog – hence Scott.”

Honestly, the Scottie news doesn’t see the resemblance:
