Born in Aitkenhead Road on the 5th October 1945 he was to change his name to, Brian Connolly, and become the blond lead singer with the Seventies glam-rockers Sweet.
The band sold over 50 million records with hits including: "Funny Funny", "Co-Co", "Poppa Joe", "Little Willy","Wig Wam Bam".,"Blockbuster", "Hellraiser", "Ballroom Blitz" "Fox on the Run" - a million-seller in the United States - "Action" later covered by Def Leppard) and "Love is Like Oxygen". Not too bad for a wee lad from Govanhill who never knew who his dad was and who's teenage mum abandoned him in a Glasgow hospital when he was still an infant.

Sadly No Way Back at 38 Nithsdale Road has now gone, the good news is, that as luck would have it, it has been replaced with a new informal and dog-friendly cafe/restaurant offering great looking and tasting imaginative food in a friendly and informal atmosphere.
Serious food and low prices, what's not to like?
