Thread Name: Remember Colin Scot?
Subject: Anyone else remember Colin Scot?
I discovered today from Derek Brimstone that Colin Scot died in Amsterdam some months ago. I don't think Colin had been back to the UK for a number of years, but I, for one, have fond memories of him back in the 60's and early 70's.

In recent years his reputation and notoriety were assured by Allan Taylor's song "Crazy Amsterdam" which describes visiting Scotty.

"Scotty, you're a terrible man, a rambling shambling Desperate Dan... "

Another for the Old Folkies Valhalla.
