Craig Scott

In the late 60s Craig Scott moved from Dunedin to Christchurch, and performed in a number of bands; one (Revival) even scored a top 20 hit.  Opting to go solo in 1970, Scott quickly topped the charts with debut single 'Star-Crossed Lovers'. In 1971 his cover of Australian hit 'Smiley' won the Loxene Golden Disc Award. Aided by regular appearances on TV's Happen Inn, more hits followed. By 1974, when he shied away from the spotlight to start a family, Scott had spent four years as NZ's number one teen heartthrob.
