Happy Birthday Stuart Adamson.

Founding member of The Skids and later Big Country.

Although Adamson was the charismatic lead singer of Big Country, he was "best known for his distinctive guitar work, which made the harmonics of two electric guitars sound somewhat like a bagpipe. Adamson, along with Big Country's other guitarist, Bruce Watson, achieved this with the open tuning of their guitars. Also adding to the distinctive Big Country guitar sound was the use of the e-bow, a device that often replaced the sound of keyboards and strings" in their music.
