Craig Scott quickly rose to fame as a New Zealand pop sensation, before retiring in the mid 70s to the great disappointment of his fans. In this 1998 Breakfast interview he spends time before the cameras on his favourite golf course, describing life before and after stardom. Then working in video for Warner Brothers, he discusses the perks of being a star, and life after fame. The interview features excerpts of his number one hit "Star Crossed Lovers". Reporter Lucy Hockings moved the following year to the UK, where she became a producer and presenter on BBC World News.
The job's fabulous. The people I work with are fabulous. I'm the happiest guy in New Zealand. It's wonderful! I can't complain, I'll tell ya. It's great. As long as they let me off a little, occasionally play some golf, I'm happy.– Craig Scott, on life after fame
