BAY CITY ROLLERS: DER AUFSTIEG UND FALL EINES TEENAGER-PHÄNOMENS
- Oct 28, 2021
From one day to the next, they were on top. Between interviews, concerts, TV shows, studio recordings, promotional trips, fan meetings, they experienced a frenzy beyond any reality: The Bay City Rollers were one of the most successful groups from the UK from 1973 to 1977. Frowned upon as a singles band, ridiculed as a band for girls, it was often overlooked that musically BCR had something enormous up their sleeve. How did the hype come about? What did the band experience in the U.S. after their number one hit? What happened after Les McKeown drove a woman to death in his hometown? Why did the Bay City Rollers suddenly fall into the bottomless pit? - We answer these and similar questions in our six-page Bay City Rollers story in the new GoodTimes Kult! which is available to run October 22.
