Dj Fatboy Slim - Fatboy Slim Pays Tribute To Tragic Fan At Rockness Festival

British Dj Fatboy Slim used his appearance at this year's (13) RockNess music festival to pay tribute to a fan who died in a car crash before the event in 2010.

Ian Buchanan died in a traffic collision as he was collecting supplies for his trip to the event in Scotland just 10 days before what would have been his 23rd birthday.

Fatboy Slim, real name Norman Cook, was horrified by the tragedy, and decided to remember Buchanan during an appearance at the event over the weekend (08-09Jun13).

Cook beamed a picture of Buchanan onto the big screen during his headline set on Saturday night (08Jun13) and dedicated his anthem Right Here, Right Now to him.

He tells the Daily Record, "I wanted to do something to recognise what happened to Ian. It was the least I could do."
