There's a group of people I know who would of ended up like the rest of the fuckwits and arseholes around us at the time, if it wasn't for the passion and honesty we learnt from people like him.
It's a shame I didn't get to talk with Stuart, it would of been nice to thank him for the experiences his music brought to me, both directly and indirect.
I'd never carried on drumming if it wasn't for Big Country, I'd never of met Lindaeither……and my cat would be nameless. Just about everything I did from age 13 upto 25 was influenced by Adamson's music.
I've deleted dozens of paragraphs from this post. No matter what I write it just doesn't do justice. In an odd kind of way, I think I now know what Stuart meant when he wrote the lyrics to "Eiledon"
Here's to you big fella….
