On a cold Saturday afternoon on 14th December 1974, Rod Stewart made a special appearance at Bruce's Record Shop in Reform Street to officially open the store.
As you might imagine, the event did cause a bit of a commotion inside & outside the shop as the crowd gathered to catch a glimpse of him. The police were even present outside the shop, trying to keep control of the crowd and I should know, I was there in amongst it all!
The photo is of Rod inside the shop.
Scottish comedian, Bill Barclay was also supposed to be present but don't know what happened to him that day!
Anyway, it was a great way to introduce Bruce's shop to the city and I became a regular for many years to follow.
The shop then moved into the Wellgate Centre in August 1979.
