Boz Scaggs plays sold-out downtown Clearwater concert on Monday

Steve Miller Band would've been a lot better if he stayed in it.

At 77 years old, Boz Scaggs has seen enough tragedy in his life to have called it a day a long time ago, but he's not doing that and heading to Clearwater this weekend for a show at the Capitol Theatre on Sunday.

It’s easy to forget that he basically co-founded The Steve Miller Band back in the ‘60s, and though he didn’t stick around for long, we can only wonder what the band might’ve sounded like had he stuck around.
In the last decade, Scaggs released a trilogy of albums consisting of American roots music—much like Bob Dylan and his Great American Songbook trilogy.

Fans love it, too, as this gig is already sold-out.
