Les McKeown (voice of Bay City Rollers)
The Lost Songs
Pre-order ‘The Lost Songs, the solo album from Les McKeown on DL, CD and limited edition LP, alongside exclusive merch.
Les and his band The Legendary Bay City Rollers starring Les McKeown have been performing to capacity crowds for the past decade and on this 50-date tour, fans will also experience a world exclusive. Concert audiences will be among the first fans to hear songs from his new album Les McKeown… The Lost Songs.
At the height of Rollermania when Bay City Rollers were topping charts around the world, charismatic front man Les was not only one of the most famous people on earth, he was also a dynamic and talented songwriter. However, he was rarely given the chance to shine as a writer as songwriters outside the band composed many of the Bay City Rollers songs.
Les would sit in hotel rooms around the world and compose songs into his trusty tape recorder in the hope they would be unleashed on the next Rollers album. History tells us this was not to happen as the band famously split at the height of their success. 40 years on, those songs can now be heard for the first time on Les McKeown… The Lost Songs.
“I kept the tapes in a suitcase in my attic and never thought they’d see the light of day. I’m ecstatic that they have now been turned into this great record and proud to finally be able to perform them for my fans.” – Les McKeown
Les has teamed up with multi-million selling, award winning writer and producer John McLaughlin. The pair met and it wasn’t long before Les was playing the original tapes from the 1970s to John in his studio. McLaughlin was blown away by what he heard and the pair started creating this killer new album.
