Music Snippets: All Saints Reunited, Bay City Roller Goes to Court & More
* Former Bay City Rollers singer Les McKeown appeared in court today accused of conspiring to supply cocaine. The 50-year-old Scottish star, who shot to fame in the 1970s with hits such as "Bye Bye Baby," allegedly conspired with former bandmember Patrick McGlynn, 47, and accomplice Alistair Murray to supply 495 grams of the illegal drug on May 17. All three men deny the charges. The prosecution will open its case at Basildon Crown Court in Essex, England in due course.
* Live 8 organizer Bob Geldof has vowed to ensure politicians stick to the aid pledges they made at last year's G8 summit in Scotland. The former Boomtown Rats frontman plans to campaign against reneging officials should they fail to keep promises to donate 0.7 percent of their nations' gross domestic product to help the world's poor. He says, "I will be extremely active in trying to get these people thrown out of office. I sincerely hope it wouldn't be necessary."
* Guitarist Patrick Walden rejoined Babyshambles onstage last night, just two weeks after the Pete Doherty-fronted band played their first gig without him. The stars surprised fans when Walden walked out with them at the start of their set at the Cambridge Junction in England. Walden had quit Babyshambles last month. On January 9, the band played their first gig as a trio at a London concert, with troubled frontman Doherty taking over guitar duties from Walden.
