Thread Name: Remember Colin Scot?
Subject: RE: Remember Colin Scot?
Patrick Small I remember Scottie from the 70s. He was a regular visitor to the Arts Centre Folk Club in Bristol. It was very sucessfully run by Pam Tobin and it featured a one man two girl trio known as White on Black as its resident entertainers. Whenever Scottie was booked you new you were in for a rare treat, and I can still see him on stage belting out 'Sandy' . I think his encores probably lasted longer than the set . The last memory I have of Scottie is picking him up in my battered ford 'pop' and transporting your man to the railway station . As his train began to move Scottie leaned out of the window and gave me a five pound note . For the petrol, he said . I told him I did'nt want it and gave it back 'Jesus Christ man said Scottie,take it and as the the train gathered speed he threw the note back again. That was my last memory of Scottie he and I throwing this fiver back and forth as the train gathered speed . Safe journey Scottie.
