img-host-scottI was born and raised in the Boston area. As far back as I can remember I was into
music. Like many original metalheads I began to seek out music that was harder,
louder and faster than the current FM staples. While Lars and company were raiding
import bins on the west coast I was doing the same on the east coast. I became a
regular fixture in any of the local shops that had an import bin searching for bands
like Priest, Saxon, and Motorhead .Needing to continue to spread the gospel of metal
I scored a Monday drive time slot on a Boston radio station eventually that slot was
moved to Saturday afternoons and the Invasion was born. That show ran for three
years and in that time I had the opportunity to debut many bands on Boston radio
including Metallica. At this same time I was working with a local sound company and
did local crew and lighting for many major and local bands. After the radio gig I
played guitar and fronted several local bands doing original music until 1996 when I
started to concentrate on producing and engineering. I did come out of retirement
for a few years playing in some cover bands but the BS outweighed the fun and it was
a battle to get them to play some of the metal that I needed to play. So here I am
pushing fifty and still focused on metal. I still write and record my own stuff. I
play guitar, bass and some keyboards I also produce, mix and consult for many up and
coming bands as far away as Japan with my Bedlam Music Productions. I also build
custom guitars under the DHJ Guitarworks name.
