SINGER TAKES PILGRIMAGE
TO DECCA RECORDS!
|| While Christian
sought to get away from the teeny bopper appeal their former bands
The Bay City Rollers & The
Tandem catered to, they were still being managed by former
Tandem & Roller
manager Tam Paton. This proved to
have its benefits. While David and Dougie resisted Tam's pleas
to become a part of the Rollers,
Dougie did accompany Tam down to London when he went searching
for a record contract for the Rollers.
During this trip, Tam cut the famous deal with Bell
Records that ended up launching the Rollers
worldwide career. At the same time, they also met with Decca
Records and ended up getting
a deal for Christian to do a single.
