Pilot

'70s soft-rockers Pilot originally formed in 1973 with its bandmembers (David Paton on bass and vocals; Billy Lyall on synthesizer, flute, and vocals; and Stuart Tosh on drums) all hailing from Scotland. The group added a few additional members along the way (including two chaps who were former members of teeny boppers the Bay City Rollers, plus session guitarist Ian Bairnson), before issuing their self-titled debut in 1974. The album spawned a Top 20 hit with "Magic," but it was their 1975 single "January" (off their sophomore effort Second Flight) that proved to be the biggest success of the group's entire career, rocketing to the number one spot. Further albums followed (1976's Morin Heights and 1977's Two's a Crowd) as well as a few more moderate-sized hit singles ("Call Me Round," "Just a Smile") before Pilot folded. Tosh soon resurfaced as part of 10cc, as both Paton and Bairnson concentrated on studio work, playing on Kate Bush's 1978 debut, The Kick Inside, as well as recordings for Alan Parsons and Chris de Burgh. Lyall issued a solo album in 1976, Solo Casting (which featured his fellow Pilot bandmates), and later joined the group Dollar, before passing away in December of 1989 from an AIDS-related illness. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi

Comments

Say I phone five times post this one five times look under your pillow
I don't think I've ever seen comments before! YEAH!!! I don't remember this group or song but I LOVE it. I do remember Bay City Rollers though.
Hey, looks like Pandora fixed the bio. :)
1973 - NOT 1998
Pilot was a Scottish band that was remnants of the Bay City Rollers. They were produced by Alan Parspns,, Abby Road engineer during the Beatles heyday in the studio. Alan Parsons went on to write and produce the Alan Parsons Project employing members of Pilot. Other members eventually played with 10cc live and in the studio. Magic charted high in the summer of 75 and enjoyed a slight rebirth upon rerelease the following summer. Rikenhagen@m e . c o m
Whoaa Whoaaa whoaa it's time for a new editor!
Actually, it is in the United Kingdom that Magic peaked at number eleven in late 1974 and January , the followup, hit number one (Call Me Round and Just A Smile were lesser top 40 hits). In America, Magic was their only top 40 hit peaking at number five in June of 1975 -- so the bio is correct but only referencing the British charts.
Wow - comments are 4 years old, and Pandora still doesn't have it right.
I have won SO MUCH money off this song (& people thinking they know it all...) So many times I've heard people say this was McCartney or Wings w/McCartney. I win every time... thanks, Pilot! Awesome song!
Thought I remembered this from when I was a kid in the '70's. Glad to know I am not crazy....
Glad some people acknowledged that the description was wrong. I thought I was having a stroke! LOL!
ALWAYS LIKED PILOT

Glad I am not the only one who was confused.

Yes. I remember this from the mid-70s. Pandora needs a mechanism by which we can let them know about errors in the content.
good eye folks !!!! i was wondering ("what the hell") when i seen those 2 thumbnail pics too!!! i thought "I" was goin' crazy!!!
Magic came out in the summer of 1975 and "January" isn't even the same band. Who writes these blogs???
Yeah, what the...? This is a Top 40s hit from the 70s. Get this right Pandora!

You guys have got it WRONG about this band. Roll up your sleeves and give us the REAL scoop on PILOT.
oh, yeah...they are most definitely two different bands!
I think these are different bands. Pilot of "It's Magic" fame and the "Anthology" album was a 70s pop band. Pilot of "Stranger's Waltz" and Dharma Bums connection is a 90s alt-rock band. Wikipedia has them mixed up too.
