the Chris McClure section aka Christian

Postby mamacheetah » Mon Aug 10, 2009 3:55 pm

Hi folks,
it's been a while, but I wonder if anbody know what age Chris McClure/Christian is. We saw him on Saturday night and he is still very good. Now an debate is raging over his age, which, according to argument participants could be anything between 55 and 75! Does anyone know the answer, to settle this argument? :D

He's nowhere near 55. I'm 55 and I well remember The Chris McClure Section gigging around Glasgow when I was 14. It's a shame the wee man had to go cabaret to make a living. He was always a sensational singer.

he played football with Andy Roxburgh in the Boys Brigade which would make him around 65 years old

A nice guy too. I used to see him hanging around in a studio I recorded in back in the 80's.

My girlfriend ( now my wife) was babysitting for a lass who was going out with Christian at that time ( late 70`s), I wasn`t supposed to be there so had to stand across the road and watch for the boyfriend going in and then coming out with her before I could go in. I saw Christian ( Hey...that`s that guy on the telly ) go in the close and come out arm in arm with the lady we were babysitting, but don`t know where that relationship went afterwards. It was a bit surreal as I didn`t expect Christian to be strolling around the streets of Govan. :)

He was a Govan boy, born and bred in Ibrox. Some of his first gigs were in The Brechin Bar.

You can both be 66, I'm the same age as a whole bunch of people.

He was never Scotland's no1 entertainer and he certainly isn't now.
