BIG COUNTRY LEAD SINGER FOUND DEAD
The mysterious, month-long dissapearance of Big Country lead singer Stuart Adamson has been resolved -- he hung himself in a Honolulu hotel room

I interviewed Adamson 15 years ago and was a genuinely nice guy -- skinny as a pencil and unabashedly passionate about music. I asked him What will you do when it's over? He and fellow BC guitarist Bruce Watsons promised that even if the band failed, they'd happily continue playing music in tiny clubs somewhere. Tomorrow (December 18), Bruce has a gig scheduled at the BeIn Inn in Glenfarg. Tickets are £10.
