GET BACK, Hamish Stuart, Robbie McIntosh, Paul McCartney, 1991
Robbie McIntosh and Hamish Stuart
Field of Vision
Robbie McIntosh is probably one of music's best guitar players. He has played with the Pretenders and with Paul McCartney. I had the pleasure of seeing him and photographing him as well as his friend and musician Hamish Stuart at two different Beatlefest conventions in 2000 and 2001. Hamish also played with Paul McCartney and was a member of the 1970's group the Average White Band.

James Hamish Stuart (born 8 October 1949, Glasgow, Scotland) is a guitarist, bassist, singer, composer and record producer.
Stuart joined Paul McCartney’s band (where he switched between guitar and bass as necessary with McCartney) for McCartney's 1989 comeback album, Flowers in the Dirt, and appearing on several other albums and McCartney's world tours of 1989 and 1993.
In 2006, Stuart toured as the bass player with Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band. He joined Starr again for a 2008 tour, where he performed "Pick Up The Pieces" and "Work to Do".
He is the curator, along with partner Claire Houlihan and friend Tom Sutton-Roberts, of the annual mOare Music festival, held in the village of Oare, Faversham, Kent.

EXPECTATION is mounting among local artists preparing to play their part in this coming weekend's Swansea International Jazz Festival.
Over 10 venues will host more than 50 gigs in and around SA1 and the Marina.

This third festival, which runs from June 17 to 19, is again in the hands of Dave Cottle, creative director and chairman of Swansea Jazzland, the jazz club based at St James Club in Uplands.
Robbie McIntosh (born 25 October 1957) is an English guitarist. McIntosh is well known as a session guitarist and member of The Pretenders from 1982 until 1987. In 1988 he began doing session guitar work for Paul McCartney joining his band full-time until early 1994. He continues to do session work and has performed both as a sideman with John Mayer and with his own band, The Robbie McIntosh Band.
The Paul McCartney Years
In 1988, McIntosh resumed doing studio work, doing sessions with Paul McCartney. McCartney was preparing a band for his 1989-90 World Tour, and with Chrissie Hynde's endorsement, McIntosh was chosen as the lead guitarist in the new Paul McCartney Band. He appears on all McCartney's albums from 1989 through 1993, and also can be seen in the concert films Get Back and Paul Is Live.
