Excerpt: Stuart Adamson (11 April 1958 16 December 2001), born William Stuart Adamson, was an English-born Scottish guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter. He founded the top-40 Scottish art-punk band The Skids and later the more mainstream rock group Big Country, as well as the 1990s alternative country rock act, The Raphaels.

The family settled in a small mining town, Crossgates, about a mile to the east of Dunfermline in Fife. Adamson founded his first two bands in Dunfermline and they both started out playing Dunfermline and across the Firth in Edinburgh. He went to school with Ian Rankin, who was two years younger and went on to become a fan of The Skids. Adamson was a life-long supporter of Dunfermline Athletic Football Club. Adamsons father was in the fishing industry and travelled the world. He encouraged his son Stuart to read literature, and both parents shared an interest in folk music. As such they were strong influences on Adamsons art. Adamson founded his first band, Tattoo, in 1976 after seeing The Damned play in Edinburgh.
