Born in Virginia, Us, SCOTT TRAVIS was a well-known drummer in the local scene of a region known as Hampton Roads during the early 1980s.
After Playing with bands in clubs throughout Norfolk, Virginia Beach, and Newport News, Travis moved to California in the mid 1980s and played in various bands, such as Hawk, and later on well-known Racer X, with Paul Gilbert.
His big career move came about late next after Judas Priest's longtime drummer, Dave Holland, exited the band.
When Holland left Judas Priest in 1989, Travis was auditioned for the vacant position and in 1989 got the job, thus becoming the first non UK's member.
Next he played drums in Halford's band Fight from 1993 to 1995.
As of 2017, Travis is the longest-serving drummer of Judas Priest, surpassing Dave Holland, who was in the band for ten years. Travis was also largely responsible for hiring Tim 'Ripper' Owens, as Halford's replacement in Judas Priest in 1996. Owens would remain in Judas Priest until the 2003 reunion. Earlier in 2016, Scott also joined the reformed lineup of Thin Lizzy for reunion shows. In reality, he is ambidextrous, and plays with an open style. #heavymetal
