BIG COUNTRY STUART'S SUICIDE; Missing star hanged in Hawaiian hotel room.

Byline: GRAHAM TIBBETTS

SCOTS rock star Stuart Adamson has killed himself in a hotel room.

The lead singer with '80s chart-toppers Big Country vanished from his home in the States following a split from wife Melanie six weeks ago.

His body was found yesterday in a hotel room in Hawaii.

He had hanged himself.

The star was known to have been depressed about the break-up with Melanie.

He was also failing in his battle to beat his long-term booze problem.

Police are treating the death as suicide and investigator Jimmy Annino said last night: "Cause of death was asphyxiation by hanging."

Adamson's close friend and manager Ian Grant said last night: "I just can't believe it. My heart goes out to his family.
