The bass guitar player of 1980s pop band, Loverboy, was missing at sea after being swept overboard by a 25-foot (7.5-meter) wave, the performer's management company said.
Scott Smith, 45, of Vancouver, British Columbia, was tossed overboard the Sea Major, his 37-foot (11-meter) sailboat. The incident occurred Thursday afternoon about four miles (six kilometers) off San Francisco's Ocean Beach, a release from manager Lou Blair said.
Two travel companions, who have not been named, were below deck when the wave struck the boat. They were not injured.
The wave's force was so strong it broke off the boat's steering wheel, the release said.
The U.S. Coast Guard searched for Smith -- who was not wearing a life preserver -- with helicopters and a boat, but the effort was called off Friday. Smith's family has mounted a private search.
The Canadian band, Loverboy, released their debut album in 1980. The group had such Top 20 hits as "Working for the Weekend," "Lovin' Every Minute of It," and "Turn me Loose."
