Guitarist/bassist/vocalist and Glasgow native Hamish Stuart is best-known for his stint as one of the most actively contributing members of Scottish soulsters the Average White Band (best-known for their 1974 number one smash "Pick up the Pieces"). He also played in Paul McCartney's band during the '90s and over the years has worked with George Benson, Aretha Franklin, David Sanborn, Chaka Khan, and Easy Pieces, among others. In 1999, Stuart's first solo album, an old-style funk/soul record titled Sooner or Later, was released in the U.K.; it was issued in the U.S. the following year. ~ Steve Huey, Rovi
