Bay City Rollers frontman Les Mckeown disappointed fans attending his comeback concert on Saturday (18FEB06) after he arrived 90 minutes late and forgot lyrics to the band's hit songs.

Angry audience members demanded refunds and branded the ageing star's performance "an hour of inaudible noise".

However, the BYE BYE BABY hitmaker insists he was humorously pretending to forget words to the songs, and blames the hall's poor acoustics for the unflattering reviews of his singing voice.

Ferneham Hall spokesman ROD CAMERON says, "He couldn't sing at all. It wasn't a good show."
