BISCUIT: Cool guys indeed my friend. Just getting back to Jerry Scott chill out time again, how do you like to spend your spare time when you can squeeze it in? Are you a film buff or a reader of books at all?
JERRY: I listen to a lot of audio books, believe it or not, and I like to play golf when I can and I also like to work out and keep in shape. I also record some stuff with a company that I deal with in New York called Indigi music which involves writing background music for film and T.V. You can find them at indigimusic.com and it’s a great website for people who might be interested in that kind of thing.
BISCUIT: When you are at home, how do you get around town, is it public transport for you or do you drive?
JERRY: I have a “Bad ass” Dodge Charger that I drive right now. It’s black with tinted windows and chrome wheels, and has loads of room inside too…yeah, it’s cool, and I love it.
BISCUIT: Let me ask this…if you were not a musician, what career path do you think you would have followed, and why would that be?
JERRY: I would probably be a high end car salesman Biscuit, because my dad owned a couple of car lot’s during my childhood and I know that there is good money to be earned there too… yeah, I think I would have been a good car salesman.
BISCUIT: Just to finish off now then Jerry, here is one last question that I would like you to answer for me, and it is this…if you had to spend a week or two alone on a dessert island, what would you take with you and why?
JERRY: Well, thinking about that one, I would definitely just take my dog and just relax. I would like to take the time to just think about things and sort out some of life’s bigger questions. So yeah, my dog “Grace”, and my thoughts and just try and relax and clear the mind, you know.
BISCUIT: I think you definitely deserve some well earned relaxation time on that island, as you have worked very hard during you career as a top bass player and musician, and you still have a great career ahead of you too my friend. Jerry Scott, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of all the readers of Bass Musician Magazine and wish you a very merry Christmas and a Happy New year, and wish you all the very best for 2010, and I look forward to hearing much more from you in the future.
