Thread Name: Remember Colin Scot?
Subject: Remember Colin Scot?
I was playing old records the other day when I found a couple by Colin Scot (Thistlewaite) who, I understand, has gone to big Folk Club in the sky.
Colin burst into my life in the mid 70s and of a year or so arrived and departed, sleeping on floors etc. until he got his 'break'. I last saw him backstage at the Bournemouth Winter Gardens, where he was support to the Strawbs, in a cloud of aromatic smoke! Then he was gone. I later heard he had walked out on his contract and gone abroad.
I wonder if anyone can fill me in with any details.
Quite a character was Scotty!
