    Sad to hear the news of Tulu. Regards to all family. Dawn Marie

  • Met him in 1978, I think. i was 17 and he was a year or 2 older. he was sincere but distanced, dry and funny, original, brilliant. kind of twisted and pure at the same time. he felt deeply. a lot of us were fascinated by him. grateful for the long hours I spent talking with him when we were very young.
    scott we love you forever

  • I worked at a gas station in Kittery that Scott frequented. I got to know him on the basis that I sold him beer and got to listen to him tell these grand stories of his good ol days. He even offered to jam with me sometime, and how I wish I had taken the opportunity. I just found out about this a few days ago. I haven’t worked at the gas station in almost a year. He was a genuine person. Human as any of us. I hope he rests easy.

  • This goes back many years… Vermont. I was a “lost” college student.Scott was a very kind man,always friendly to me.He played in a band with Marc W,the Objects.Scotts sense of humor was amazing. Scott,I am glad I once knew you! Rest in Peace! (can’t forget their “Meat City” comedy)
