This is the book that fans of the Skids, Big Country and the Raphaels have been waiting for – a critical perspective not only of Adamson’s music and its wider cultural influence, but also the excesses of fame and how the music business really works. Stuart Adamson: In a Big Country tells the story of how a teenager who was raised in a small Fife village released his first single at 19, wrote three Top 40 albums in the next three years and was written off as a has-been at 23, but then went on to form a new band and sell more than 10 million records worldwide, touring with the Rolling Stones and David Bowie. Although Stuart Adamson was one of the most respected and popular figures in the music industry, his personal life was complex – depression, alcoholism and estrangement – and ultimately tragic, ending with his suicide in a Hawaiian hotel in December 2001.

Stuart Adamson In a Big Country

With an introduction by Ian Rankin, fellow Fife inhabitant and a big fan of Adamson, the young musician’s harsh and suburban beginnings are deployed with an honest and informed approach, but with a novelist’s flair. Glen’s biographic skills match that, and the story is told with an informality that will create a page-turning presence for the reader. Adamson’s tragic demise is told with severe compunction, but told as well as any lauded (vastly extended) obituary, with the necessary details but also added personality.
