Scott Raynor (born May 23, 1978) was the original drummer for Blink-182, until he was replaced by Travis Barker after the Dude Ranch album. He was the drummer for Blink-182 from 1992-1998. In Mid-1998, Raynor left the band. The band consisted of Raynor, Tom DeLonge, and Mark Hoppus.
He was an avid Metallica fan in his youth. He became a drummer when he joined his first band with some friends because they called all the “good instruments” before Raynor could choose.

After that there were some reports that Raynor was shot dead in 2003, following a dispute with his new band Grimbly. This turned out to be a hoax. He said on his message board that he is alive, but a homeless man from San Diego was apparently killed in incidents linked to the rumor.
Alternative sources claim Raynor’s departure from Blink-182 had nothing to do with his drinking habits. A fan web page claims Scott left the band in pursuit of his college degree. None of the band members have recently spoken about Raynor, hence rumors and hearsay constantly floating about.
Some suggested the lyrics of the song “Man Overboard” off the live album The Mark, Tom, and Travis Show (The Enema Strikes Back!) were directed at Raynor, but Hoppus denied this rumor when he guest presented Loveline.
On August 14, 2006, released an exclusive interview, in which Mark Hoppus answered 20 questions, for which fans had been seeking an answer, since the hiatus of Blink-182. When asked about his thoughts on Scott Raynor, Hoppus said he would prefer not to answer, and that Raynor had discussed the matter of his own will in interviews.
