About Andy Scott: Born 30th June 1949 in Wrexham, North Wales. Andy first picked up the guitar at 13 moving on to play bass ("because someone had to") with a plethora of local bands (The Fore-Winds, Missing Links and The Strangers) before settling in the Silverstone Set. In 1966 the group won Hughie Green's Opportunity Knocks, six weeks running, eventually to be beaten by Freddie Starr. This led to the Silverstone Set playing support to Jimi Hendrix on his first shows in the UK in 1967. In 1978 "Love Is Like Oxygen", written by Andy Scott and Trevor Griffin, won an Ivor Novello nomination in three categories and also took the ASCAP Award that year.
