Scott McCaughey

Scott McCaughey has been accidentally living the rock & roll dream, in all its folly and glory, for forty years or so.  See: Young Fresh Fellows, Minus 5, R.E.M., the Baseball Project, etc.  He lives in Portland, Oregon, rides a girl-bike, rarely changes clothes, and in his spare time fixates on burritos and baseball. You can follow him on Twitter here.
