Tributes pour in for tragic Scots DJ Ewan Macleod, 48, after he was found dead at home

TRIBUTES have been paid to TV presenter and DJ Ewan Macleod after he was found dead at his home.

Friends say the 48-year-old's life goal was to "put Scotland on the map" for music.




The popular Scot helped launch a hit radio venture backed by Rangers legend Ally McCoist and presented STV’s Chart Bite music programme.

He later went on to become a music correspondent for newspaper the Sunday Mail.

Macleod was also a manager for a record label for independent record label, Influx Music.

He had recently tried to launch the Scottish Rock’n’Roll Hall of Fame museum.

Despite the backing of stars including Annie Lennox and Midge Ure, it failed to secure the £6million needed.

Donald MacLeod, who owns The Garage and Cathouse nightclubs in Glasgow, paid tribute to his friend.

He said: “Ewan was one of Scotland’s glitterati and played that part in full with some of his mad outfits.
