Stuart Adamson found in a Hawaii hotel room...

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.
