anyone who read tales beneath your mom knows that they were all friends. he was credited for songwriting on all of those albums. tom and scott founded the band. 

That book was more or less a fluff piece for the band, I wouldn't take it as gospel.

So were the UC documentaries. Which sucks looking back..but at the same time, they created the band mystique that hooked so many of us

Scott has the potential to be an interesting character. I’d genuinely like to know what he’s like, what his beliefs are, thoughts on blink, possible regrets, etc. Nobody knows a thing about the guy, it’s crazy for someone who was in a band as big as blink.

The dude might be in the R&R HOF someday and has barely spoken a word about the band since he was kicked out.

members in blink good

members no longer in blink bad 

it's us vs them!!!

lol, I'm just messing around.. Of course I know the "official" band history with Scott though.

All I'm saying is that I'd like to hear his side of the story. I could make a list of 100 questions for the guy

LOL it wasn't even an official book and had ZERO, aka ZILCH, aka NO input from any of the bandmembers. Sheesh!

I agree with @Ghent that Scott is still a (potentially?) interesting character in the Blink story. Sure, quite a few bands have original members who left before the band got big, and they all probably share some regrets or "what if" feelings.

But Scott is interesting for actually being in the band for years during their ascent (including reaching the top of the punk "underground" world and scoring a huge hit single), and for how incredibly silent he's been in the 20+ years since.

It's kind of like Scott has the life of an anonymous accidental one-hit-wonder from the 90s who never planned on being in the music world. Because if Dammit was Blink's only hit and then they broke up, I'm pretty certain that Tom and Mark would have kept creating music one way or another. But not only is Scott not famous, he is so unknown and seemingly disinterested that it's strange to even imagine him being enthusiastic about creating music in the first place.

Maybe he signed some kind of NDA back in the day, maybe his feelings are hurt, maybe he's just that introverted or truly doesn't give a shit, who knows! That's what makes him and his story so mysterious.

He heard how much better Travis made Mutt and he never wanted to create music again!

Personally, as someone who has played in bands for half of my life now, I have seen a LOT of people come and go within music scenes. ESPECIALLY early on, when playing an instrument in a band could just be a fun pastime in high school/college. Plenty of people play for fun but don't necessarily have the passion/interest to build their life around it. Normally, they and their bands just gradually slow down as other interests and life stuff comes up.

My guess is Scott was one of those people. He started playing with Tom and Mark for fun in high school, only it took off more than expected and Tom and Mark's passion and creativity drove their lives while Scott was looking around going "WTF how did I end up here??"

If he was interested in that he would have pursued music in a different way after splitting with Blink. He was a Gold-album-selling drummer who had toured all over the world, been on MTV, packed the Warped Tour! He could've easily kept playing as a career if he wanted to. He clearly never had the personality to be in a fulltime successful band, let alone a gigantic phenomenon. It definitely worked out best for everybody.
