In a Big Country is the book that fans of The Skids, Big Country and The Raphaels have been waiting for, offering a critical perspective not only on Adamson's music and its wider cultural influence, but also the excesses of fame and how the music business really works. This book tells the story of how a teenager who was raised in a small Fife village released his first single at 19, wrote three Top 40 albums in the next three years, fell out with nearly everyone in the music business, and was written off as a has-been at 23. But then went on to form a new band and sell more than 10 million records worldwide, touring with The Rolling Stones, David Bowie and Queen. While Stuart Adamson was one of the most respected and popular figures in the music industry, his personal life was complex - depression, alcoholism and estrangement - and ultimately tragic, ending with his suicide in a Hawaiian hotel in December 2001.
