Scotland Fever: The Bay City Rollers are BACK

I just sat in my car in the driveway, much longer than necessary, listening to the Bay City Rollers' "I Only Want To Be With You." I found myself straining to hear the slightest whisper of a Scots accent and delighting in the little up swoop whenever they sang "what you doooo."

(I never thought to do this as an 8 year old, bopping around my house and singing their songs at the top of my lungs with my sisters, mind. Tracey and I will gladly give you a repeat in our next video.)

The fact that the Bay City Rollers are touring again brought a wee bit of warmth to my wame, that is for sure.  Tracey, Third sister, Jill and I will no doubt buy tickets if they show up in NJ/PA.

(Eric Faulkner was my absolute fave.  What about you?

For the moment, the tour only includes Les, Alan and Woody. They are still holding out hope that Eric will join them at some point!

Oh man...c'mon now...what is he doing that he can't join them?? Wouldn't you think he'd want to get on stage and have us 40 and 50-somethings swooning??? (Enter "laughing so hard I'm crying" emoji here) Crossing my fingers!! Thanks for the info, Tracy! :)
