Thread Name: Remember Colin Scot?
Subject: RE: Remember Colin Scot?
I knew Scot and Lesley via the Stalhouderij Theatre company in Amsterdam. Scot wrote the title song to a video film I made. I used to stay in their house and look after their cat when they were away. Saw him play lots of times in the String and the Scotia. Scot was a lovely, big&bighearted person. I loved his music. My favorite song that Scot wrote is 'Take me away'. I used to sing 'Edward and Charlie and me' to my kids when they were little, only I'd sing 'Emile and Sofie and me'. Years after his death you would still hear his voice on the commercial for the 'Profile Tyre Centre'. Nowadays they have a voice that I still think of as the 'Fake Scottie'. Nobody can emulate that voice...
