10CC

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. 10cc has sold more than 30 million albums around the world and the band’s longevity is testament to their timeless songs. Founder member Gouldman attributes 10cc’s lasting appeal to the quality and individuality of the band’s songs. “They don’t seem to date; they are original, we never followed any trend we simple wrote for our own pleasure. The fact that the songs are being played as often on the radio today as they ever were shows how true that is,” he says.  10cc ruled the pop world at a time – the 1970s – when the charts were dominated by some of the most creative and colorful artists in pop history.  Unlike David Bowie, Queen, Elton John or Rod Stewart – all of whom they stood shoulder-to-shoulder with for a decade – 10cc’s energies were not centered on image or celebrity-status, but on creating highly sophisticated rock masterworks with mainstream appeal. Notable hits include “Donna”, “I’m Not In Love”, “Neanderthal Man”, “Art For Art’s Sake”, “Things We Do For Love”, and so many more!
