Scottish rock musician, bass player and one of the founding members, with his brother Derek, 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. 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.
