Welcome to scotbeat blog… I hope to learn more about the ’60s music scene in Elgin and around NE Scotland as knowledgeable readers share memories and tidbits. If I misspell or make an error, please let me know… cheers. I recently opened this blog based on what I gained some insights and bits in 2007-8, when first visiting Elgin where I met my wife. Thanks to nephew of A Bonici and former promoter, John Ruggeri, and others I’ve spoken with, I hope to shed light on the subject.
Born in San Francisco and raised with music around me. Though having a broad taste in music, I loved the pop era circa the 60’s and 70’s growing up and love it now. I raised 3 sons who also enjoy a variety of music including this period of music.
In 2008, I moved to Scotland where current I reside with my wife who knew the Bonici and Ruggeri families and appreciated the wealth of music presented through the 1960’s-’70’s thanks Albert and those who worked with him.
