Three Minutes With…Mark “Gus” Scott of Trixter

Three Minutes With……
Mark “Gus” Scott of Trixter

In 2010, we had Pete Loran take on the Sack ‘O Questions – and he went two rounds. Not to be outdone, drummer Mark “Gus” Scott also went two rounds after Trixter played a sold-out show in  Teaneck, NJ last fall.

Your question is – What is the wackiest question you’ve ever been asked?
Metal Edge used to ask some wacky questions, because she tried a little to hard to make it wacky. It was like “What was the most embarrassing moment” or something like that…one of the most embarrassing moments I had was when I ended up coming back after my first tour to this restaurant I visited in Paramus and there were these two girls that were with my other two friends, and I happened to sleep with both of them. That was a little embarrassing. It was like, “Hi. I’d like you to meet my girlfriend.” “Oh, I met her before! Kinda didn’t work out so well!” <laughs> What about you? When are you back in Vegas? I wanna come see you.

I leave Sunday (two days after this interview)
So. What, are you gonna take me to the Bellagio? Venetian? Or what?
I spend a lot of time at Green Valley Ranch and Sunset Station.
Green Valley Ranch? Is that like the Bunny Ranch auxiliary?
Ummm. No.
C’mon. Everybody’s doing it! – Okay. Gimme another one.

Okay. What is your best hangover remedy? (Thanks to Mario for the question!)
I don’t really get hangovers. It’s my understanding that Vitamin B and iced tea is very good. That’s part of it. Number one. Number two is that I think you should eat something. Two nights ago, we were in Maine and LJ (one of my friends) got real f-ed up, and I asked him, “How do you feel?” He’s like, “Dude. I feel terrible.” I asked him, “Well, what’d you eat today?” “Nothing.” KEY PHRASE!  I believe that if you truly eat something it absorbs the crap inside of you and gets your body back to normal. It may be a problem getting there, but you really have to do it. Otherwise, Vitamin B and unsweetened iced tea. Maybe a little sugar. But I do unsweetened.

Right on! Now you can plug whatever you want.
Check out
The Copper Bottom Restaurant in Florida, New York. That’s my restaurant. Zagat rated for the fourth year in a row. Very good to Excellent. It’s Rock n’ roll!

Are you or do you know a musician coming through Las Vegas that wants to give the shortest interview ever with probably the shortest interviewer ever? Forward me contact info or put them in touch with me. Do you have a query for the Sack O’ Questions? Email me at (Sorry, I can not guarantee any question to be asked to anyone specific, because it’s literally the luck of the draw, but if your question gets drawn, you’ll get props – make sure you note how you want to be thanked!)
