Bay City Rollers’ legend Alan Longmuir cleared to fly home

Bay City Rollers’ legend Alan Longmuir has been cleared to fly home, according to reports.

As previously reported on AAA Edinburgh, the 69-year-old guitarist was rushed to hospital after falling seriously ill while on holiday in Mexico last week.

Now, a Facebook post on the official page of hit Fringe show I Ran With The Gang has confirmed that Longmuir has been cleared to fly home on an air ambulance.

It reads: “Alan has been cleared to fly and will be flown home in an Air Ambulance.

“It is understood the flight should leave Mexico later today or tomorrow.”

The Bay City Rollers became one of the most successful groups of all time after they burst upon the scene in the early 1970s, selling an estimated 70 million records.

The reformed band – featuring Les McKeown, Alan Longmuir and Stuart ‘Woody’ Wood – triggered a new wave of Rollermania a couple of years ago when they announced a string of comeback gigs before releasing a brand new album and going on to be honoured with a Living Legends award at Scotland’s music industry Oscars.
