Thread Name: 2011 Scottish Singer Alex Beaton illness-rehab
Subject: RE: Scottish Singer Alex Beaton in critical condition
I spent 12 days with Alex in Scotland in fall, 2009, and had a great time with him, he is always funny and sings great old Scottish and Irish songs.

When I first saw him in the bar of the Glasgow hotel, I called out "Alex Beaton?"   I had never seen him before but had seen his picture on an album of his. He walked right up to me and said, "Do I owe you money?"

We got along great after that. My best wishes to Alex on his recovery!
