It is reported from normally reliable sources that Guitarist / Singer / Songwriter / Band leader Stu Page died this morning at the age of 59.

Throughout the 80s and the 90s Stu Page and Ramuda then latterly The Stu Page Band were on of the most respected outfits on the British country music scene.

Stu had been away from the country music scene for a long period and had just started playing clubs again. Mary and I last saw him at The Segull at Brean last October.

Sad news. I knew Stu in the 80s and 90s. Saw him at the Leeds CC and many a fest. I also bought a guitar at the music shop where he worked.
For the benefit of newcomers to CM, let me point out that he achieved quite a lot for a Brit country star. As the nucleous of the Stu Page band, he was an international star. They toured throughout Europe and visited Nashville. They also had videos on high rotation on CMT. After Stu's best friend, Andy Whelan, left the band to marry Gail Davies, the band started to unravel so Stu formed the B'eagles, an Eagles tribute band , again touring worldwide.

I thought it was Stu's Bass player who left the band to marry Gail.
Andy contined working with the band for several years after that.
