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.

Good point. NDA or not, he must have had zero interest in being a popular/mainstream musician. Some other band would have picked him up. But he still liked drumming, because he played in small time irrelevant bands?

I'm not meaning this as some kind of direct insult (before Casey awkwardly tries to rip me up again), but the other possibility is that he truly is a crackpot or oddball type of guy. I'm not assuming this is the case, it's simply a possibility as we don't know anything about him.

Sometimes starting over is extremely deflating. Ever spend several years with a girl/guy that you really loved only to have it end with them dumping you....and then you realize those years are lost and you have to start everything over? It sucks! Especially if that person is parading around someone new, who is better looking and more talented than you, and that person helps launch your ex- into a crazy successful life that you'll never get to be part of. In that case, it could (and should) be a long time before you enter another relationship because you need to deal with your emotions and figure out a lot about yourself. Jumping into another relationship right away isn't going to work out. It could take years to get over that split. In the meantime, life is going by and you're getting older....I bet he was so demoralized and didn't do music for a long time. I don't think he ever resurfaced being in a band until years later. And now he's old with a normal life already established.

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.

just read his interview bits in the shooman book. scott's quite open and honest about things.

also it's funny to read through this thread with all the scott stuff the last day or so because i knew the guy personally.

You'd think after all this time he would sign up for Instagram or Twitter or something and start talking a bit about his blink years. Did they gag order him Ryan Sinn style or what?

There is probably more to explore here.

I use to talk to the guy on AIM back in the day after he left he would always say "I can't talk about it" When AVA got brought up. So clearly they put some kind of gag order on him. Plus I don't think we've seen many interviews with him at all since he left.

I doubt many people are trying to interview Ryan Sinn anyways though lol

Do you think Davey ever got to see Mark, Tom, or Scott's penis live in person? If so, I wonder who is biggest.

Distillers are back again, so maybe? No one gives a shit about AvA or his role in it though, so definitely not about that.

I feel like Scott is secretly packing a hog.

Oh, that's his original band? With a name like that I figured he came from Avenged Benfolds or something

Hopefully. Imagine being booted for Travis to get way more hype, then seeing the leaked pictures of Travis's massive donger and realizing that little skeletor also has a bigger snake than you. Just brutal.

@JarJarBlinks just pointed out to me that Blink Italia is posting about Scott today on Insta.

Dude's lurking here echoing our content on his social media.

Order a cease and desist

They literally went on the timeline and comprehensive thread and reposted stuff on their socials and making it like they found it ...

They also did that with that Underworld footage from 1996 that I found and posted it here as well
