STUART ADAMSON, the former frontman of 80s Scottish rockers BIG COUNTRY, is dead.
Adamson, who had been missing from his Nashville home for several weeks, was discovered in a Hawaii hotel room yesterday morning (December 16)
A statement just released by his manager Ian Grant reads simply: “I cannot believe I am sitting at my desk typing this. Stuart Adamson was found dead in a hotel room in Hawaii yesterday. I have no more news other than that at present. I ask the media to leave his family alone in their grief. My heart goes out to his family, Bruce, Mark and Tony. I have just lost one of the finest people I have ever worked with or been lucky enough to know.”
A cause of death has not been revealed. Adamson, 43, had been fighting alcoholism for some time. He went missing previously for a time in 1999. More news as we get it.
