  AKA: Pudge
  Birthday: November 9th, 1954
  Place of Birth: Newton, MA
  Instruments: Drums
  Time in Aerosmith: 1970

  • One could argue if David Scott really should be featured here, as the band hadn't yet taken the name "Aerosmith" (which Joey Kramer came up with, and gave the band when he joined, after Pudge's departure) when he played together with Tyler, Perry, Hamilton and Tabano. It's up to you if you want to give him credit as the original Aerosmith drummer or not...

  • He was the band's first drummer, but left the band as he was younger and had to finish high school.
  • He played with them in 1970 when they first moved to Boston and practiced at Boston University.
  • While Scott was in the band, they played cover songs like Train Kept A Rollin and Mother Popcorn, and were starting to work on originals that at that time were just jams, i.e. One Way Street and others from the first album
  • He was replaced by Joey Kramer
  • He was never involved in any Aerosmith album
  • He played in Plastic Glass, Pipe Dream and The Jam Band with Tom Hamilton and Joe Perry from 1965-1970
  • He is still a close friend to Tom Hamilton, Joe Perry and Steven Tyler
  • He is featured on a CD (2002) called Legends In The Making with his son, singer/songwriter/guitarist, Drew Scott. This is an independant CD. It has been sent out to various labels and Aerosmith is listening to it...
