I once saw a version of the Bay City Rollers live at a club in Albany, NY in the early 90's. It featured Woody, his younger girlfriend, and some other random musicians.

It also featured a shouting match and some tossed beer and some threats of physical violence between the girlfriend and some other young women in the crowd.

Ah, good times.

Here is a hour long doc on the Bay City Rollers narrated by Clare Grogan (Alerted Images) which apparently touches on how the band sold 120 million records and saw very little of that money due the contracts they signed.

Wikipedia lays it out a little, but after a decade long lawsuit they each ended up with about 70K in pounds

Well Woody at least ended up with a hot young singing girlfriend.
