Scott is currently in CCU after having received stints due to heart problems. Local musicians are putting on this benefit for Scott who has made music his life. Now that same music can help him,…….. Scott has written songs that were recorded by music greats such as Eric Clapton, Gregg Allman, Bonnie Bramlett, Neil McCoy and many others. Scott toured with Gregg Allman in 1974. Over the years, Boyer has released a number of recordings both as a soloist, “All My Friends”, with N.C.
