Notable Quotes about Jon Scott

Six weeks before our record was going to be dropped from ABC Records, Jon Scott went to radio stations with a vengeance and got our record played and on the charts. Because of that, we are forever grateful to him.
Tom Petty

It doesn’t matter how good your record is, you gotta have somebody behind it. It doesn’t matter how good it sounds, if
you don’t have a promotion guy behind it, you’re in trouble. But there's this one promo guy named Jon Scott who went on a one-man mission to radio stations and he broke that first Tom Petty record.
Warren Zanes Author, 'Tom Petty'-the Biography

We would not be listening to Tom Petty on the radio had it not been for you Jon Scott.
Mark Felsot Sirius/XM Host and ProducerTom Petty Radio Channel 31

If you’re really lucky, your band will find it’s champion. The key man who opens the doors. For The Heartbreakers, it was Jon. He climbed in the van with us and did the repetitive, heavy lifting that got our music on the Radio. I cannot thank him enough for being there when we needed him. There’s no Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers without Jon Scott"
Stan Lynch  Original Drummer – Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
