Bay City Rollers

The Bay City Rollers were a Scottish pop/rock band of the '70s with a strong following among teenage girls. The origins of the group go back to the formation of the duo the Longmuir Brothers in the late '60s, consisting of drummer Derek Longmuir (b. March 19, 1952, Edinburgh, Scotland) and his bass-playing brother Alan (b. June 20, 1953, Edinburgh). They eventually changed their name to the Saxons, adding singer Nobby Clarke and John Devine. Then they changed their name again by pointing at random to a spot on a map of the United States: Bay City, Michigan. Their first hit was a cover of the Gentrys' "Keep on Dancing," which reached number nine in the U.K. in September 1971. In June 1972, guitarist Eric Faulkner (b. October 21, 1954, Edinburgh) joined. In January 1973, singer Leslie McKeown (b. November 12, 1955, Edinburgh) and guitarist Stuart Wood (b. February 25, 1957, Edinburgh) replaced Clarke and Devine, stabilizing the quintet's lineup.

After flopping with three singles, they finally hit the Top Ten again in February 1974 with "Remember." At this point, the Rollers became a teen sensation in Great Britain, with their good looks and tartan knickers, and they scored a series of Top Ten U.K. hits over the next two and a half years: "Shang-a-Lang," "Summerlove Sensation," "All of Me Loves All of You," "Bye Bye Baby" (a cover of Four Seasons hit that went to number one), "Give a Little Love" (another number one), "Money Honey," "Love Me Like I Love You," and "I Only Want to Be with You" (a cover of the Dusty Springfield hit). Their albums Rollin', Once Upon a Star, Wouldn't You Like It, and Dedication were also Top Ten successes, with Rollin' and Once Upon a Star getting to number one. They scored their first U.S. hit with "Saturday Night," which was released in September 1975 and hit number one in January 1976. It was followed by the Top Ten hits "Money Honey" and "You Made Me Believe in Magic." The Rollers also had five straight gold albums in the U.S.: Bay City Rollers, Rock 'n' Roll Love Letter, Dedication, It's a Game, and Greatest Hits.

Alan Longmuir left the band in June 1976 and was replaced by Ian Mitchell (b. August 22, 1958, Downpatrick, County Down, Northern Ireland), who was in turn replaced by Pat McGlynn (b. March 31, 1958, Edinburgh) in June 1977. Longmuir returned in 1978, the same year that McKeown was replaced by Duncan Faure and Faulkner quit to go solo. But by then the Bay City Rollers had scored their last hits. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi

Oh, the memories. The BCR were the soundtrack to my early teens. Two concerts where I screamed my throat raw. My room was ugly so I covered it top to bottom and some ceiling with mostly BCR posters. I wish I had a good picture of it. I was obsessed. Now I am just sad. Les is/was an addict, Derek a pedophile. Their disgusting manager raped them. Their music still makes me happy and my 17 y.o. daughters like it. I am grateful for the memories.

Met Ian and thanked him for the BCRs inspiring Blietzkreig Bop by the Ramones, he was so nice and played a Teal Colors SG guitar that I drooled over, real hot guitar play. Fun Power Pop and a guilty pleasure of mine

Loved the Rollers growing up in the 70's, and have loved them ever since! Don't have posters anymore, but I still have all their music!

This band had my heart back in the 70's. They got me through my teens, and their music will forever be in heart. My favorite was Eric, but I loved them all.

Yeah BCR's! I met them by accident at a Radio Station while picking up an lp I had won. Changed my life from then on. Saw them first row the following summer and nearly got killed by the screaming girls rushing the stage. Good memories!

I have absolutely loved this group and always will! They were the best in the 70's.

I wonder how their musical viewpoints have changed - if they're like so many other "has-been" bands, they hate one another and have vowed to never perform with them again. Still, if they're friends, and they can add their world-wisdom to something current, I'd be happy to check them out again. I just loved their effervescent energy.

The Bay City Roller community is still alive and kicking and we have lots of fans. Most are on myspace, but some of us oldies still use Yahoo Groups. I run the Derek Longmuir group, and there are groups for Ian Mitchell as well as Les McKeown. We have had several fan fests over many years, and are planning an upcoming one in 2010 for Les on the East Coast. I would love to hear from any/all fans, and maybe meet you at an upcoming get together. Please feel free to email me @ bcrchick63@y a h o o

I love heavy Metal, but since I didn't care what most people thought about me I openly admitted to liking them and the Osmonds.. yikes but Good Music is Good Music, but they bring back a great time in my life,I would enjoy fooling people that came over and I would play the Osmonds and some refused to believe it was them, but at the time most people would not come out and admit they liked them... POSERS & PHONIES

I SO Love these guys...espec i a l l y Les! Being twelve, people really think I'm strange, but oh well. That's their problem. Bay City Rollers Forever!

These guy's were every teenaged girl's dream in 1977. When standing in 90 degree heat in Seattle at the old Paramount theatre from 7:30 am to see them in what is now festival seating. The concert rocked and we all had great fun. Their music make's me think of my Tarten cuffed pant's and striped sock's all over again.
