With more than 25 years of drumming experience, Scott Reeder teaches drumming in Orange County, when not touring or recording with Fu Manchu.
On March 10, 2010, it was announced that Scott Reeder would play drums for Social Distortion for the South American tour dates in April. As of July 2010, Reeder is no longer drumming in Social Distortion and has returned to Fu Manchu for their upcoming tour. His replacement in Social Distortion is now David Hidalgo, Jr., formerly of Suicidal Tendencies and The Drips.
He is not related to the bassist from Kyuss, despite the fact that they both have the same last name and are stoner rock musicians from Barstow, California. Co-incidentally, they are now both in a band called Sun and Sail Club which formed in September 2013 which also includes fellow Fu Manchu band member Bob Balch.
