Alan Longmuir recovers in hospital from a suspected stroke

Former pop star Alan Longmuir was recovering in hospital from a suspected stroke last night.

The 49-year-old bass player with the Bay City Rollers collapsed at his Stirling home. His condition was "comfortable and stable" but he was expected to be transferred to a Glasgow hospital for specialist tests. Longmuir quit the chart-topping band in 1975. But former manager Tam Paton, who recently suffered a heart attack, last night said he feared ex- members of the group might still have to pay the price of their rock and roll lifestyles.
