Known As: Scott Hammond
Weapons: Drums, Cymbals, Gong and Ocarina
Born sometime in the latter half of the 20th Century in the mystical valleys of Bristol, Scott came of age with a fascination of the beating drum. Wishing to unlock his hidden talent, he took his chances with the unrelenting journey north to The Temple of Funk where he was instructed in balance, control, meaning and levitation by the wise and legendary Drum Master Dave Hassell. After years of daily devotion to both new and ancient rhythms, Scott elevated his powers and acquired the coveted Scroll of Enlightenment. He later made passage back to the bamboo forests of Bristol and began family life in his humble shanty.
For the following twelve years Scott traversed nature's heavenly body with a curious company of minstrels known as Jethro Tull under the watchful eye of their overlord Ian Anderson. In between recent travels, Scott ascended the hallowed Wah-Wah Mountain and willingly accepted the calling of the Jingu Bang.
