Personal life

He was an avid Metallica fan in his youth. He became a drummer when he joined his first band with some friends because they called all the "good instruments" before Raynor could choose.

Raynor was asked to leave the band in 1998 to attend rehabilitation for a serious drinking problem. When looking at the lyrics to the Blink-182 song "Man Overboard", some speculate that the song is about Scott and his drinking problem in relation to the band. However, Mark Hoppus in a interview said this was not true. In 1998 after Raynor left the band he joined a band called Death on Wednesday playing guitar. Later on left the band to be back on drums in 2002. In 2003 he tried to start a band called Grimbly which didn't progress much. In 2004 he joined a band called Isinglass along with One Track Mind. Isinglass broke up in 2006 and One Track Mind is reported still active.

Scott was mis-credited in the 1999 movie American Pie. In the credits, they put "Scott Raynor" instead of "Travis Barker".[1] But he was one of the original writers of the song "Mutt" which was the featured song on American Pie.

Scott Raynor (May 23, 1978) is an American drummer. He was Blink-182's drummer from 1992 to 1998, when he was told to leave the band. Now Raynor is a drummer for varied band, Isinglass and One Track Mind.

When asked about being removed from Blink-182 in an interview,[1] this is what Raynor said:


I think the greatest misconception was that I was fired for drinking. I received a phone call from Mark, Tom, and Rick (manager), one afternoon after a recent tour. They gave me an ultimatum to quit drinking and go into rehab. I didn't think I needed to go to rehab so I asked for the weekend to think about it, they agreed. I went out and got drunk. After that weekend I realized that I had a drinking habit that I needed to break so I told them I would go to rehab but they said they didn't trust me. So I asked if there was anything I could do to stay in the band and they said no. So I was never given a reason. Another misconception is that I am somehow upset or bitter about this. When they said they wouldn't trust me to quit drinking I realized that I was not in the company of friends. And I wouldn't have wanted to be in a band whom [sic] are not my friends.
