Friends of Scott Smith, 45, bass player from 1980s Canadian rock band Loverboy (“Working for the Weekend”), and the Coast Guard searched the Pacific Ocean this weekend after a strong wave reportedly knocked Smith off his 37-foot sailboat about four miles from San Francisco’s Ocean Beach on Thursday. The wave was so fierce that it broke the vessel’s steering wheel, according to a statement from band manager Lou Blair. Smith was not wearing a life jacket.
