Thread Name: Remember Colin Scot?
Subject: RE: Remember Colin Scot?
Yeah, I remember Colin Scott. Scotty and I were very good friends. I don't remember when or where we met but we were both living in London. I don't remember a lot of thinks trying to keep up with him.   At the time I had a 1961 Volvo and he and I traveled everywhere from Scotland to Italy at breakneck speed with the occasional case of Newky Brown(Newcastle) on the back seat and hash wafting through the car. Gig after gig he delivered a powerful infectious set. I loved to watch him lift audiences. His music and his tales made him a great entertain. I don't remember a bad gig. I miss him.
I also lived him and his lady for about a year in Amsterdam, Christine and her dog Boris the tekelhund - dachshund. The adventures continued there.

Martin Hall was a co-writer and good friend of his. He wrote a disparaging poem lambasting me for selling out to the world by accepting a gig (Polydor International in Hamburg) out of fear. And then honored by asking me to be godfather for his daughter, Alice. Love to hear from or about Martin and Jo Johns his enduring lady in London and a wonderful person.

Scotty and I just lost touch.
