TROUBLED rock star Stuart Adamson was cremated at a private ceremony yesterday.

More than 50 members of the singer's immediate family - led by his parents Stuart and Anne - said their farewells at Dunfermline Crematorium.

Stuart's children, Callum and Kirsten, also attended the simple, moving ceremony for the star who took his own life earlier this month.

Members of Big Country, guitarist Bruce Watson, bass player Tony Butler and drummer Mark Brzezicki, plus the group's manager Ian Grant, also paid their respects.

A spokesman for the Adamson family said: "Stuart was our beloved son. It is impossible to find the words to express this terrible sense of loss.

"We pray he has found the peace he was looking for. We are very grateful for the many, many messages of sympathy we have received from his fellow musicians, friends and know Stuart would have been overwhelmed.

"Our world will never be the same."

The singer and lead guitarist of Big Country was found dead in a hotel room in Hawaii on December 16.

Stuart took his own life after a lengthy battle with alcohol addiction and depression.

A memorial service celebrating Stuart's life and music will be held next month at East End Park, home of the musician's beloved Dunfermline
