In 1973 brothers Damian, Terry and Colin McKee, formed a band called Young City Stars with a friend, Ian Mitchell. They played local clubs and dance halls and quickly became popular, often opening concerts for the Bay City Rollers. Young City Stars added guitarist Andy LeGear from Belfast. Bay City Rollers manager Tam Paton, noticed their talents and became their manager. They changed the name to Rosetta Stone in 1977 and signed on with Private Stock Records later that year.
