Scottish rock musician, drummer and one of the founding members, with his brother Alan, of the band, "Bay City Rollers."
The original group formed while the brothers were still in school, performing at local gigs and approached by Tam Paton who recognized their talent and becomes their manager; choosing the group's name by sticking a pin in a map of the U.S. They signed to Bell Records in 1971, toured extensively throughout the UK, but received their highest popularity in Japan.
Alan left the band in April 1976 and Derek left in June 1977 to become a nurse in Edinburgh. The remainder of the band dissolved around 1978. The band's manager, Tam Paton, was sentenced to three years in prison in 1982 for gross indecency to teen boys. In 1990, varying band members reunited for an annual concert in Japan.
In 2000, Longmuir was sentenced to 300 hours of community service for possession of child pornography. His foster son stated in an interview that he had been set up by an obsessed American fan who mailed him the material a few days before it was discovered.
