James “Scott” Ricciuti
DOB Unknown – April 5, 2012
Scott Riccuiti was a respected Boston, Massachusetts area singer-songwriter and guitarist who had been entertaining folks throughout the area going back to at least the mid ’80s. As a member of Childhood, Riccuiti successfully competed in Boston battle-of-the-bands, culminating in their victory in radio juggernaut, WBCN’s Rock ‘n Roll Rumble in 1987. That lead to respectable video play on MTV for the band. Childhood ultimately disbanded in 1993. Other groups in which Riccuiti played included Pistol Whipped, A Pony For My Birthday, Huck, and Preacher Roe. And other acts he performed with on stage over the years include Shana Morrison and Jim Carroll. Scott Riccuiti was 48 when he was killed in what initially appeared to have been a single-car accident on April 5, 2012.
