RE: Fareham makes the national news again
BAY City Rollers star Les McKeown was booed and heckled by angry fans during a comeback concert.
They claim the 50-year-old singer, recently cleared of drug charges, stumbled on stage 90 minutes late and forgot song lyrics.
Fans demanded their money back as the show in Fareham, Hants, deteriorated into "an hour of inaudible noise".
At one point, the 70s heart-throb even hid behind an amplifier.
Fan Kay Heath said: "He couldn't sing at all." Rod Cameron, of concert venue Ferneham Hall, said: "It wasn't a good show."
But McKeown blamed the hall's sound system and claimed he forgot the lyrics as a joke.
Was out last night, saw Abi Titmus in The Charles Dickens, but didn't take her picture, sorry Kez, that's a Heat Magazine bonus gone begging I know. Went drinking, got asked to ush at Ralph's wedding, does this mean I have to get a new suit now? Went for dinner at Tayyab, it's very nice, and people were queued out the door again.
Dang, think I lost my phone too :-(
off topic, but...
Have you seen the new darksided movie with Marguerite Perrin unloading on Bush for not being a Christian? Brilliant mate. Must see.

I saw the Babyshambles on Friday and Pete actually performed quite well, no signs of the effects of drugs although he didn't appear until 11. In an attempt to take pictures amongst the crowds of people I dropped my phone, but miraculously I managed to find it again.
