Scott first became a Beatles fan when he was just thirteen years old. He was caught up in the wave of Beatles nostalgia which swept the world following the announcement of John Lennon's death.
As he grew older, Scott began reading about the lives and exploits of The Beatles, and it soon became his ambition to become a member of a Beatles tribute band. He learned to play the guitar and memorised the lyrics from every Beatles album he could lay his hands on.
As a stickler for detail, Scott has collected replicas of all of the Beatles guitars, including the highly sought after acoustic Gibson J-160E which The Beatles used on almost all of their albums.
Naturally, as the John Lennon of the band, Scott plays a black and white short scale Rickenbacker 325 C63 for that chunky sound which John produced in the Beatles early years.
To recreate the more sustained ringing guitar sound from the middle and latter part of the Beatles recording career, Scott plays a beautiful replica Epiphone 335 Casino in sunburst colours.
And, of course, for the last part of the Blue Beatles set, Scott switches to his "blonde" version of the same guitar model, capturing the look and sound of the Beatles famous last live performance on the rooftop of London's Abbey Road studios, while the group were recording the movie Let It Be.
Scott's other influences include other Sixties groups including The Hollies, The Searchers, The Kinks, The Beach Boys and The Monkees. Scott also plays more contemporary music, but his first love is still the clean, melodious Sixties sound.
