Keith Douglas Scott (born 20 July 1954) is a Canadian guitar player. He is best known for his long-term collaboration with the singer-songwriter Bryan Adams. He has also worked with Cher, Tina Turner, Bryan Ferry, Tom Cochrane, Craig Northey and other musicians.
One part of Scott's live career which was particularly demanding was when Adams' band were touring as a 3 piece from 1998 to 2002. He performed all the rhythm and lead guitar work simultaneously, while Adams played bass and the third band member, Mickey Curry, played drums. In later years, however, the band developed into a 5-piece band, allowing Scott to play lead guitar while Adams plays rhythm. Adams' concerts often allow Scott to perform a "showcase song" to show off his lead guitar skills. Adams stands back and lets Scott go to town on an improvised solo, sometimes involving the use of microphone stands, beer bottles, or other items that can be applied to guitar strings. Examples are songs such as "It's Only Love" and "Touch The Hand". On very rare occasions, Scott has also performed his own songs at Adams' shows: for example, "You're The Reason I Wear Black", during their tour of Japan during the 1990s.
At the Juno Awards in 2006, Bryan Adams described Scott as his best friend.
Scott, along with Bryan Adams' drummer, Mickey Curry, and Mark Holden (the founding member of 1980s Canadian rock band Boulevard) created a band called 'The Fontanas.' The band has released a self-titled album.
