hey alex, just found this site as an old friend of stuart adamson's from the early days named clive ford posted on the big country official site about your guitarist list and your kind words about stuart's playing.

i have to say your guitarist/song list is perfect. all bands and players that i love and a few i've neglected to hear.

i'm in SF too and will check out your blog further. just wanted to pass on praise for your radio show and your great taste. stuart's playing does transcend, you are right. he is my fave all-time also.

cheers, david
