Home / Biography / Glencoe


Located in London, England, Glencoe was produced in 1971 by two ex-members of Forevermore; Mick Travis (electric guitar/vocals) and Stewart Francis (drums). Graham Maitland (d. 1997; keyboards/vocals), who had previously used Francis in 60s action Hopscotch, and Norman Watt-Roy (bass; ex-Greatest Present ON THE PLANET) completed the first line-up. In 1972 Travis was changed by John Turnbull (ex-Skip Bifferty and Bell And Arc). Glencoe after that became an extremely popular live appeal, renowned for thoughtful, melodic, unpretentious rock and roll music. Glencoe completely captured their abilities, but unfortunately The Heart Of Glencoe was a proclaimed disappointment. The group split in 1974. Francis became a member of Sharks, while Maitland transferred to the united states where he pursued a songwriting profession. Watt-Roy and Turnbull produced Loving Understanding with Mickey Gallagher and Charley Charles, an organization that in 1977 became the Blockheads, support group to Ian Dury.
