Musician. Born in Hereford, England, he was best known as a guitarist and founding member of the rock band The Pretenders. After several rehearsals and recording sessions, Scott officially joined the group as lead guitarist in 1980.

He died in London, England, of heart failure caused by cocaine intolerance at age 25. His gravestone is inscribed "Love is Everything. It is the key to life, and it's influences are those that move the world. Forever in our hearts". (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
