About Howard Scott 

He is a world-famous guitarist, vocalist, and music producer that has been in several musical bands.

After completing high school, he toured with The Drifters for a brief. After that, he joined the US Army in 1966.

After completing his service in the US Army, he made a comeback in music by creating his second band with Harold Ray Brown. The name of the band was The Night Shift. In 1969, Lee Oskar and Eric Burdon stopped by to hear The Night Shift play at the Ragdoll Club. Lee joined them in a jam on the stage the same day.
