Embarassing Scott Photos #5

Scott's band pic from college

As we continue in our riveting series of my checkered past, we dive into the college years. This is one of the few pics I have of my “band days” in college. Full-on goatee, and yeah, at one point I had long hair. I was playing bass in a band called “Kid Rhitalin.” We named it thus because three of the four guys were on or had been prescribed for Ritalin. Hence, the picture above of me being a bit hyper is quite fitting.

The makers of Ritalin sent us a cease-and-desist letter, believe it or not — after just one show. This is pre-internet days, so we’re pretty sure some douchebag from the local drugstore saw a flier, and called the company. I begged the band members to keep the name, so we could get publicity, but I was out-voted — seems they didn’t want to take on Big Pharma. Go figure.

    Did your bands wardrobe draw

    Did your bands wardrobe draw inspiration from jazzercise workout videos?


    Does someone go into the park and, uh… lift up the dinosaurs’ skirts?

    you didn’t by chance…

    Happen to have an ’83 GMC Vandura with a shag dashboard and a mural of a barbarian hoisting his broadsword to the sky while a half-nekkid buckskin clad maiden was wrapped around his leg, did you?  Maybe also a dragon in the background, or a dark wizard?

    Cause that’s the vibes I’m getting.

    I’m with you FDO.  You should have kept the name – what great free advertising for the manufacturer.  If that’s they way Big Pharm wants to be I would have changed the name to Writ-A-Lynn! That would have been apropos since they sent you a cease-and-desist letter!
