Scott began his career at age 7 repairing mom’s toaster and iron. As an adolescent it was tape recorders, radios, record players, and guitar amps. He and his cousin built an AM radio station in a San Francisco garage, and went on the air broadcasting music and comedy skits to neighborhood friends…until the FCC intervened. Undaunted, the shows continued via acetate discs and tape recordings. While in high school, he worked at a one-size-fits-all radio station that played Perry Como during the day and rock at night. He also played piano and bass in a garage band, and hot-rodded electric pianos, guitars, and amps for the other players. He soon got a gig as a recording engineer at a local studio where he met singer/songwriter Randy Sharp. Together they built a basement studio out of modified PA equipment, recording Randy’s music and outside projects like Dixieland jazz, blues, country, and rock. Scott also provided sound for artists such as Emmylou Harris, BB King, Jerry Lee Lewis, Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley, Delaney and Bonnie, and others. Family life soon inspired Scott to work closer to home as a technician, tech writer, and manufacturing engineer for a few electronic manufacturing companies. He also freelanced as a radio/tv voiceover artist, studio technician, and musician. At some point he began inventing microphones, PA systems, guitar pickups, lawn mowers, exercise equipment, bicycles, and finally, co-invented the POSSE with Randy. Future projects include swimming pool maintenance equipment, a municipal bus, and other wacky stuff.
