A few months back, speculation was rife that all was not well in the Bay City Rollers camp – and now those rumours appear to be true, with Stuart “Woody” Wood announcing that tonight’s (July 9) appearance at T in the Park will be his last ever gig with the reformed rockers.
The 58-year-old, who lives in Edinburgh, posted the following on social media site Twitter: ‘Hi All…just to say TITP is my last gig. Disappointed is an understatement but outwith my control.’
Wood added that he would be updating fans with more news on his departure from the band soon.
His decision to leave the band will come as a surprise to fans.
Earlier this week, in an exclusive interview with AAA, Wood said, “It is quite amazing that we are getting another kick at the ball…it just goes to show that good songs never die and hopefully a new Bay City Roller album at the end of the year can add to that.”
The Edinburgh pop legends became one of the most successful groups of all time after they burst upon the scene in the early Seventies, selling an estimated 70 million records.
The reformed band – featuring Les McKeown, Alan Longmuir and Wood – triggered a new wave of Rollermania in September 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.
McKeown is set to release a solo album on August 22 called The Lost Songs.
