The Bay City Rollers live


We are Les McKeown’s band. The Legendaries.

About the band

Rollermania with The Legendaries are all members of the late Les McKeown’s final touring band: Scott McGowan, Phil Hendriks, Darren Lee and Nick Gornall. 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 the 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 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.

Live gigs

Les McKeown’s
Bay City Rollers

We played with Les McKeown, the voice of the Bay City Rollers, for over ten years, performing sold-out shows worldwide which featured all the big hits and more.

We continue to perform now, and we deliver a high-energy show that keeps the essence, the spirit and the musical legacy of Les very much alive.

We are not a tribute band – we are Les Mckeown’s band.
