Had a great time reading this....I loved the Rollers:),
This review is from: Bye Bye Baby: My Tragic Love Affair with the "Bay City Rollers" (Bloomsbury Paperback) (Hardcover)
I just read the book yesterday and enjoyed it very much. Caroline had me laughing out loud and also got me thinking about why this kind of 'fandom' happens. I was a very enthusiastic Roller-fan in the 70's, but wasn't old enough to follow them or get to meet them then. After reading this, I'm glad of that fact, because...for me...I needed them to be 'perfect' and I would have been so crushed to realize they were 'real' people. Oh, how devastated I would have been if they had spoken to me they way they did to Caroline and her friends! The book brought back a lot for me, though. That feeling we got when 'our guys' were on TV and the excitment of lining up overnight to try to get tickets to see them. I enjoyed reading about the "TTT"'s and I think most Roller fans will appreciate Caroline's humor and insight into this special time in our lives.
