Jane Scott

Ohio, USA
Death: Jul. 4, 2011
Lakewood
Cuyahoga County

Journalist. She was known as the world's oldest rock music critic and the world's "second oldest teenager", after Dick Clark. Educated at the University of Michigan, she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English in 1941. During World War II she served as a US Navy Lieutenant cryptographer. After the war she worked as a journalist for several suburban newspapers before joining the staff of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and was assigned as a reporter to the society pages in 1952. On September 15, 1964, Scott found her true calling when she volunteered for a story no one else at the paper was interested in covering: a concert in Cleveland with four lads from Liverpool called The Beatles. She went on to attend over 10,000 concerts and music events before retiring in 2002 at age 83. She not only interviewed but formed personal friendships with many of rock music's royalty, including Paul McCartney, Jim Morrison, Mick Jagger, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and Britney Spears. In 1991 Scott was inducted into the Cleveland Press Club Hall of Fame, and she was also influential in bringing the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Rock Museum to Cleveland. She died from complications of Alzheimer's disease. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
