"The drummer, Scott Hammond, was fluent, fluid, and provided a jarring, romping five minute drum solo that rocked the house." 

The Alternative, U.S.A. 


"Ace drummer" 

Western Daily Press

"Scott Hammond handled the suite's tricky tempos with an even-handed, understated approach" 

New York Music Daily

"Absolutely scintillating" 

Bath Chronicle


"I want to acknowledge the drummer, Scott Hammond, whose solo in between Parts 1 and 2 (of Thick As A Brick), was spectacular. Performing this type of music you have to be good and Hammond proved he was up for the challenge." 

Rock Chicago Magazine, U.S.A. 

"Experienced and accomplished musician" 

Wiltshire & Gloucestershire Standard


"The groove of this band comes just about single-handedly (well, that'd be two hands and two feet, actually) from Scott Hammond, a drummer I rate very highly. Scott is not a loud drummer (generally, a good thing, that), but he swings with such precise force that nothing else matters. I could listen all night to him by himself." 

Charley Dunlap (Music Journalist)

"Anderson’s backing band, all of whom have spent time in Jethro Tull in various incarnations, more than rose to the occasion. Drummer Scott Hammond was a particular standout, even getting a chance to perform a tasteful drum solo on 'Dharma for One.' "

Jim Ousley (The Arts STL - Fox Theatre Concert, St Louis, USA)

"Solid yet stylish kit work" 

Evening Post

"Drummer Scott Hammond is especially praiseworthy here, as he seems to be capable of matching any stylistic shift thrown at him. Straightforward hard rock? Check. Traditional folk passages? Check. Crazy time signatures galore? Check. And, as he’s been previously described as predominantly being a jazz drummer, he manages to add a pinch of fusion in the mix as well. “Allfather” is a great example of his work on RökFlöte, as he truly runs the gamut on this track: a complex folk-prog intro, simple 4/4 drumming in the middle, some aggressive hard rock touches here and there, and a nice folk-oriented reprise to cap things off."
Sputnik Music (reviewing the Jethro Tull album "RökFlöte")

"Been hearing good stuff about Hammond of late, oodles of swing but can keep it busy when the funky stuff kicks in. Keep an ear out for him."
