Biography

Scottish musician, a guitarist, pianist, bassist and mandolinist with the "Bay City Rollers," one of the biggest pop groups of the 1970s. They were teen idols in Great Britain and had a series of top ten hits, including "Summerlove Sensation," "Remember (Walking in the Sand," and "Bye Bye Baby." After an on-stage fight between Wood and lead singer Les McKeown in 1978, the band split up. Although he was soon touring with a new band, Wood responded to his former group’s break-up by drinking and using drugs heavily. His days and night were spent going from one seedy bar to another, downing whiskey and chain smoking.

At age 32, however, he decided he needed a clean start and made a conscious decision to change his life. He moved back to his homeland and adopted a healthier lifestyle that included a fitness program. Unable to run due to knee pain, he began walking briskly in the beautiful countryside around his home.

In 1998, he released the album "Scottish Moods," which sold more than 100,000 copies and co-produced "The Lone Piper," which became the best-selling Celtic album of 1998.

Wood and his wife Denise married in 1996.
