IN 2000, Loverboy bass guitarist Scott Smith drowned when he was swept off his sailboat near San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge. Smith was 45. He joined Loverboy in 1980, as the Vancouver-based rock group began its recording career. Loverboy sold more than 23 million records during the 1980s and won six Juno awards in 1982. Their hits included Turn Me Loose and Working for the Weekend.
