Growing up in a quaint little town helped Scott McDonald utilize words like "quaint" in his everyday banter. This in turn, transferred over into his music, providing many more opportunities to use obsolete words and useless phrases. After a brief stint in the "Welcome Back Kotter" fan club, Scott got serious about his music. All it took was one song to change his life forever, PAC MAN FEVER. Those pulsating rhythms, the astute lyrical commentary, the cool, chomping sound effects masterfully placed throughout the entire cut. It spoke volumes.
