Hundreds pay tribute to critic

Hundreds turned out in Cleveland as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame paid tribute to a woman whose long career put others in the spotlight.

The Plain Dealer reports the newspaper’s late rock critic, Jane Scott, was remembered for her enthusiasm and her respect for music artists.

Scott died July 4 at 92. Her reviews had made her a presence on the Cleveland rock music scene from the mid-1960s until she retired in 2002.

Sunday’s memorial event at the Rock Hall drew almost 900 people. Those who shared memories of Scott included U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Cleveland, who said she had an “infectious sense of joy.”

Wally Bryson of the Raspberries said bands never felt they’d arrived until Scott interviewed them.

Her writing was average at best,the local bands sucked up to her just to get ink in the Plain Dealer.The biggest and only thing she did was interview The Beatles early on,but hundreds around the country did. No big deal!
