|Scott F. Crago|
Scott Francis Crago (born July 26, 1963), twin brother to Jeff Crago, is an American session drummer, most notably recognized for his work with The Eagles (as their backup drummer, as well as touring with them) since 1994. He has played for other artists such as Venice, Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt, Bryan Adams, Stevie Nicks, Jackson Browne, Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder, Bob Seger and Chris Isaak. He also writes songs as well as drumming. When he was in 10th grade at Greenfield High School, Greenfield MA, The Eagles had only just broken up. He says:
"Yeah - the funny thing is, the Eagles broke up when I was in tenth grade in High school. To think back then when I was a fan that one day I'd be playing with the Eagles, sitting in London doing an interview, co-writing songs, it's like 'Yeah, right! I don't think so!' But you know, the world is a crazy place, and the music business is even crazier, so you never know what's going to happen..."
On the Eagles' Farewell 1 Tour-Live from Melbourne DVD, Glenn Frey introduces Crago as hailing from Greenfield, Massachusetts.
He is endorsed by Drum Workshop Drums (DW), Craviotto Snare Drums, Paiste Cymbals, Vic Firth Drumsticks, Quikstix Drumstick Holders, and Reebok Apparel.
Scott Crago and Jeff Obermeyer invented a drum muffling device (U.S. Patent # 5,088,376). Drum Workshop manufactures the device, the DW Pro-Cushion, for drummers to place inside their bass drums for a dampened sound.
