25/03/19 – I am devastated to hear the news of Scott’s passing.
Throughout our 36- year long working relationship we shared a passion for capturing the sounds and emotions that came from deep inside his creative soul and in our musical journeys together we collaborated with many of the finest musicians in the world.
His voice was like no other I have recorded. Sometimes like velvet, like silk, sometimes like a shard of metal or glass hitting you when you least expected.
Above all Scott was a gentleman. He loved the music business. He loved his team of musicians and technicians, was loyal to everyone he worked with, committed and uncompromising.
There will never be another recording artist quite like him.
Goodbye Scott, my friend. We worked hard and had a lot of laughs along the way.
Your music will live forever in our hearts. Peeedrue x
