Personal Quote:

Music used to be a thing where working people got together on a Saturday night and played some songs. Someone'd play the guitar or the fiddle or an accordion. No bastard'd played the synthesiser. Stuart Adamson


May 31, 2002...A tribute concert in honour of Stuart was played in Glasgow, Scotland. Many established musicians performed on the night, including his old friend, Richard Jobson, with whom he had formed the band, The Skids, over 20 years before. Other performers included Hugh Cornwell, Midge Ure, Kirk Brandon, Bill Nelson and Adamson's 2 children. See more »
