Bay City Rollers – “Saturday Night”

Former Bay City Rollers members Les McKeown and Stuart Wood have said that fans should “forget” about the potential of a reunion. “i just don’t have time for people like Woody now. He’s a guy I knew who I was in a band with, but he has a completely different attitude to showbusiness than I do,” McKeown explained, according to The Scotsman. “You can’t make divorcees like each other once they are divorced. The fans should forget all about any kind of reunion. It’s just not going to happen.”
