Scott Cushnie

[Scott Cushnie, 1998]
Scott Cushnie, a member of Robbie Robertson's early band the Suedes (with Peter "Thumper" Traynor, who also played in Robbie's groups "Thumper and the Trambones" and "Robbie and the Robots"), took over Willard Jones' job as the Hawks' pianist for a short period in 1959-60. When bass player Jimmy Evans left the Hawks in 1960, Scott Cushnie was the one that talked Ronnie Hawkins into hiring Robbie Robertson as his replacement.

When Stan Szelest replaced Scott Cushnie, he brought bassist Rebel Payne with him. They'd both been playing with Jerry Warren and the Tremblers - based in Hamilton, Ontario. Ironically, Warren replaced Szelest and Payne with Cushnie and Traynor.

Scott Cushnie rejoined Ronnie Hawkins and the Hawks later in the '60s, and has also played with, among others, Aerosmith and Duane Allman. In the '90s he released the albums Two Pianos No Waiting and Two Pianos No Waiting Volume II.
