“ROLLERMANIA” with THE LEGENDARIES
Les McKeown’s former touring band perform the hits of the Bay City Rollers
The “Legendaries” comprises of members of the late Les McKeown’s final touring band, Scott McGowan, Phil Hendriks, Nick Gornall and Darren Lee. The latest addition is Dave Major on keyboards, who had previously deputised for the band on several occasions.
Scott McGowan had been part of Les’s band for over 12 years, first as guitarist, then as keyboardist and now he returns to guitar and vocals.
Phil Hendriks joined “Les McKeown’s Legendary 1970s Bay City Rollers” as guitarist in 2011, direct from a 3-year stint in original Rollers guitarist Eric Faulkner’s version of the band.
During Scott and Phil’s tenure with Les McKeown’s band, they performed numerous overseas tours in countries including Australia, Japan, Canada, as well as annual UK tours, festivals and numerous TV appearances. They were also part of the backing band at the celebrated Rollers “reunion” shows in 2015 and 2016, which featured original members Les Mckeown, Alan Longmuir and ‘Woody’ and included a televised show at the “T In The Park” festival and the “Hogmanay Live” TV show. Scott and Phil now share the lead vocals in ‘The Legendaries’.
Darren Lee had frequently stepped in on drums before becoming a full-time member in 2019, as did bassist Nick Gornall, both firmly establishing themselves with two tours of Japan, a UK arena tour, UK theatre tours and the fateful Canadian tour in 2020, which was curtailed half-way through due to the Covid pandemic and would sadly be Les McKeown’s final tour.
