Manager pays tribute to Scots rocker
Big Country on Top of the Pops

Tributes have been paid to Scots rocker Stuart Adamson who has been found dead in Hawaii.

Ian Grant, who managed the 43-year-old throughout his career, said: "I have just lost one of the finest people I have ever worked with or been lucky enough to know."

Mr Grant first met Adamson in 1977 and managed him throughout his career, from his beginnings in The Skids to critical acclaim with Big Country.

Stuart Adamson: "Great guy"
He said: "He was a man that I had a lot of respect for.

"You don't stay with someone in this business for that length of time unless that is the case.

Mr Grant added: "At the moment someone close to me has died and I feel like I am in some kind of void."

"He was a great guy and I know there will be a lot of people will feel the same way.

"Everybody who met Stuart liked him."

Big Country split last year and Adamson went on to form another group, The Raphaels.

He had lived in Nashville for the past five years.
