Kevin Nealon joins Josh Adam Meyers to discuss Boz Scaggs' self-titled debut album. Every generation in history has produced creative minds that laid the groundwork for those who came after them, and as episode 496 of The 500 with Josh Adam Meyers shows, it’s not even clear to those trailblazers how their efforts will ripple outwards in time. While Saturday Night Live has produced dozens of wildly influential cast members, few alumni have crafted as humbly ubiquitous a presence in comedic television and movies as this week’s guest, Kevin Nealon. The same could be said of Boz Scaggs, whose soulful self-titled debut album which Kevin and Josh digest, was so different in style and execution from its contemporaries, and its staying power as a landmark of Americana wasn’t recognized until years after its release in 1969.
