Musical Interlude: In a Big Country (1983)

 Scotland's Big Country scored their only American top 40 hit with 1983's "In a Big Country". Bassist Tony Butler might look familiar to some of you, since he'd played with Pete Townshend before joining Big Country, and appeared in a pair of Townshend's videos.

Singer-guitarist Stuart Adamson passed away in 2001, but by then, Big Country had become a footnote in the early years of MTV.
