  • Promo image for 10CC

    10CC 6-Nov-2014

    Among the most inventive and influential bands in the history of popular music, 10cc are one of the very few acts to have achieved commercial, critical and creative success in equal measure, with their current live incarnation still able to sell-out major concert halls. Testament to 10cc’s ongoing appeal, the band can count an array of fellow artists – from Robert Plant, Chrissie Hynde and Axl Rose to The Feeling’s Dan Gillespie and Sophie Ellis Bextor – among their many millions of fans. With eleven Top 10 hits, including three No 1s – Rubber Bullets, I’m Not In Love and Dreadlock Holiday – it’s no surprise the band has sold 15 million albums in the UK alone. Founding member Graham Gouldman, who leads the current line-up, puts 10cc’s longevity down to the quality and individuality of the songs.
