Thread Name: Remember Colin Scot?
Subject: RE: Remember Colin Scot?
Fond memories of 'Scotty', he could get an audience joining in, like nobody else I ever met.
His repertoire was eclectic, and a lot of what he sang wasn't exactly what you might call folk music. He was a force of nature, and a great entertainer.
I'm sorry he's shuffled off this mortal coil, but in a way, not surprised. he lived life hard, and to the full.
Alan Taylor's song 'Scotty', calls him "A sort of rambling gambling Desperate Dan" That says it all for me.
