BAY CITY ROLLERS frontman LES McKEOWN dies age 65

Scottish singer Les McKeown, who achieved global superstardom in the 1970s as the lead vocalist of tartan-garbed pop titans the Bay City Rollers, has died, his family confirmed Thursday. He was 65.

McKeown fronted the Bay City Rollers  in the mid-1970s, when their hits “Shang-A-Lang,” “Bye, Bye, Baby,” and “Give a Little Love” catapulted them to acclaim and earned them scores of young fans in Britain, the United States and beyond. The band reached the top spot in the American Billboard chart once, with “Saturday Night,” and enjoyed success there long after the initial “British Invasion” of the 1960s had waned.
