Adamson Memorial 10 years on…

Fans of tragic Big Country star Stuart Adamson gathered to mark the 10th anniversary of his death yesterday.

A wreath of red and white roses bearing the musician’s name was laid in his home town of Dunfermline, Fife.

Fans travelled from across the UK to attend the ceremony, organised by Gwenda Matthews.

Another fan listened to the event via telephone (on loud speaker) Bonnie Boyle from California…USA.

Gwenda from Wigan said:

“I must have seen Stuart perform over 50 times and I met him a few times and I met him a few times.  He was a lovely man who had plenty time for every fan he met.  The ceremony is the very least I could do I hope it gives comfort to fans who continue to hold his memory dear”.

Andy Talbot, 49 from Crossgates, Fife, added “The music Stuart wrote with the Skids then Big Country is someoof the best to ever come out of Scotland.  It’s tragic he was taken from us so young”

Adamson was just 43 when he was found hanged in a hotel room in Honolulu, Hawaii in 2001.
