05.24.2016 – Spirit Show #14 – Duncan Faure from The Bay City Rollers
Fronting not one but two of history’s biggest-selling bands, a prolific writer of 100+ songs, and a consummate performer who has played to millions worldwide, Duncan Faure is a legend.
Duncan first burst on the scene in the 1970s as the frontman for South African rock-pop sensation RABBITT. Together with friend and guitarist Trevor Rabin, who later joined British rock band YES, Duncan led RABBITT to multiple gold and platinum albums and several Grammys.
With Duncan gracing hundreds of major newspapers and magazines as the band’s heartthrob, RABBITT to this day remains one of South Africa’s biggest rock-pop bands of all time.
The same year RABBITT broke up, Duncan became the new frontman for Scottish rock-pop sensation the BAY CITY ROLLERS. Immediately his musical sophistication won him and the band wide critical acclaim and millions of new fans worldwide. His three timeless albums resonate with his fans to this very day.
In a mere ten-year period, Rabbitt and the Bay City Rollers sold over 50 million records worldwide – in no small part due to the contributions of young Faure. Indeed, during “Rollermania,” the fame and popularity of the BAY CITY ROLLERS rivaled that of the BEATLES, with chart poppers like “Saturday Night,” “Elevator,” and “Turn on the Radio.”
