Scott Columbus

Scott Columbus

Real/full name:
Walter Scott Columbus
54 (born Nov 10th, 1956)
Apr 4th, 2011
Place of origin:
United States (Fair Haven, New York)


Columbus was the longest-serving Manowar drummer.

He first left Manowar shortly before the recording of The Triumph of Steel in 1991, supposedly because his son was sick and he wanted to spend more time with him. However, in interviews he gave after his second dismissal, in 2008, he said "[m]y son was never sick, make of that what you will".


Columbus was married to Kimmy Brett for less than a year; they had a daughter called Teresa Burgdorf. In 1982 he remarried to Victoria A. Columbus and was together for 17 years with two children, Scott and Anthony. They divorced in 1998, and he remarried to Kathy Recupito in 1998, then divorced in 2008; they had one son, Corey. Later, Columbus met and dated Nancy Baker until his passing in 2011.
