Scott Raynor

Scott Raynor, born Scott William Raynor, Jr. on May 23, 1978 in Poway, California, is an American drummer, best known as the original/former drummer for the punk-rock band, Blink-182.

Raynor began playing the drums in his pre-teen years and joined Blink-182 in 1992. By the time he was 19, the group had gathered a large fan base as well as a gold record, Dude Ranch.

After struggling with alcohol abuse, which caused tension in the trio, Raynor was fired midway through Blink-182's 1998 tour, leaving the drum chair to Travis Barker.

Scott Raynor continues to perform with a wide variety of groups and is involved with the charity, StandUp for Kids.
