Mit seiner letzten Single ?Einmal im Leben? schenkt uns Wincent Weiss eine Hymne der Selbstliebe. Denn mit den Worten ?Du bist perfekt, so wie du bist? und ?Dich gibt es nur einmal im Leben? versichert er ausdrucksstark, dass wir genug sind.Der Sänger kann auf ein bisher sehr bewegtes Jahr 2019 zurückblicken. Die Teilnahme am diesjährigen ?Sing Meinen Song?, einen Platz 2 Album Chart Entry seines 2. Albums ?Irgendwie Anders?, die daraus ausgekoppelten Hit-Singles ?An Wunder?, ?Hier Mit Dir? und ?Kaum Erwarten? und dazu noch eine umjubelte Sommer Festival Tour.Weiss ist ?oben? angekommen. Ausgezeichnet mit dem ECHO, einem MTV Music Award, einem Radio Regenbogen Award, dem Audi Generation Award und gleich zweifach mit dem Bayerischen Musiklöwen. Mit einem veröffentlichten und einem unveröffentlichten Album im Kreis der Künstler, deren Repertoire in der aktuellen Staffel des TV-Musik-Dauerbrenners ?Sing meinen Song? untereinander ?getauscht? wird. Wenn nicht auch schon das für die Qualität der Songs des neuen Albums spricht.Wirklich ausgezeichnet aber durch die Liebe seiner Fans. Über 150.000 ZuschauerInnen bei fünf eigenen Solo-Tourneen und noch einmal mehrere hunderttausend bei zahllosen Open-Airs und Radiofestivals in den letzten drei Jahren. Über 470.000 Follower allein auf Instagram. Wincent Weiss bewegt. Ende 2018 im Rahmen einer US Highschool-Tour mit dem Goethe Institut, wo SchülerInnen mit den Texten seiner Songs ihren Deutschunterricht gestalteten. Oder als Botschafter der deutschen ?Kindernothilfe e.V.?, die er in der Projektarbeit unterstützt. Letztes Jahr unter anderem in Peru. ?Ich habe noch nie in meinem Leben so intensiv die Erfahrung gemacht, dass überall da, wo du dich öffnest, du selbst bist, dich nicht verstellst? Überall da, wo du Liebe gibst, diese Liebe tausendfach zurückkommt. Das war und ist immer noch eine sehr krasse und schöne Erfahrung?. Doch ist dieses ?Irgendwie Anders? Gefühl, das diese turbulenten letzten Jahre markiert, mitnichten nur ein ?Überflieger?-Gefühl. Für Wincent Weiss ist es zwar überwiegend Glück und Dankbarkeit, ohne jedoch zu leugnen, dass sich da nicht auch manchmal eine gewisse Nachdenklichkeit und Zweifel eingeschlichen hätten zwischendurch. Und sehr viel Sehnsucht.Womit eigentlich auch schon der rote Faden des neuen Albums ausgelegt wäre. Es geht um die Themen, die unsere Gefühle im Zaum haben: unsere Beziehungen. Zu anderen, zu uns selbst. Träume, Wünsche, Liebe. Verlust und Einsamkeit. In allen Stadien des ?davor?, ?zwischendrin? und ?danach?. Positiv wie negativ. Themen, die weder ein bestimmtes Alter kennen, noch ein Haltbarkeitsdatum, das irgendwann mal überschritten wäre. Es sind ehrliche Songs. Und so geht es neben den vielen Glücksmomenten vor allem auch um die Leerstellen. Die Leerstellen im Leben und vermehrt um die, die sich in den letzten Jahren aufgetan haben. Denn die Scheinwerfer, die den Erfolg strahlen lassen, werfen eben auch Schatten. Gerade für einen Beziehungs- und Familienmenschen wie Wincent Weiss. Quasi ständig unterwegs. Ein Leben im Tour-Bus, in Hotels, ohne richtiges Zuhause. Wenn nach dem Adrenalin und der Euphorie auf der Bühne die Einsamkeit zu einem ins Bett kriecht. Wenn das Vermissen kommt. Wincent Weiss versteckt diese Leerstellen nicht, er thematisiert und teilt sie. Den Song ?1993? widmet er seinem Vater, den er nicht kennt, der nie für ihn und die Familie da war. In ?Pläne? und anderen Songs geht es um die gescheiterte Beziehung, von der man geglaubt hatte, dass sie eine Zukunft hat. Um die Stiche im Herzen, wenn man erkennt, dass man die geliebte Person verloren hat. An jemand anderen. ?Ich habe in den letzten zwei Jahren auch schon darüber nachgedacht, einfach hinzuwerfen und die Karriere an den Nagel zu hängen. Mir schien der Preis, den ich dafür bezahlen musste, manchmal zu hoch. Eine Liebe, die in die Brüche gegangen ist, meine Familie, die ich kaum noch gesehen habe. Beziehungen, die mir wichtig waren, kaum noch pflegen zu können. Da fragt man sich manchmal, ob es das alles wert ist?, so Wincent Weiss resümierend.Zum Glück hat er es nicht getan. Sondern hat die emotionale Ambivalenz der letzten Jahre in den Songs seines neuen Albums verarbeitet. ?Irgendwie Anders? ist es. Ein großer Schritt nach vorn. Denn Karrieren wie die von Wincent Weiss sind in einem sich ständig verändernden Musikbusiness selten geworden. Vielleicht auch, weil es immer weniger ?Typen? gibt, wie ihn. Weil es immer weniger Künstler gibt, die sich auf der Bühne viel mehr zuhause fühlen, als im Studio. Künstler, die zeitgleich auch begnadete Entertainer sind. Einehmend, nahbar, humorvoll, mitreißend, natürlich.Wincent Weiss hat sich in den vergangenen Jahren emanzipiert. Er ist reifer geworden, reflektierter. Ohne dabei aber seine Unbekümmertheit, seinen Witz und seine Energie zu verlieren.Auf der Stelle treten ist nicht sein Ding. Vielleicht geschuldet seiner Passion für Skate- und Snowboard, schnelle Autos und Motorräder. Und Veränderung gehörte immer schon zu seinem Leben. Nicht nur 12 Umzüge allein bis zum Abi stehen dafür. Zwischenstationen und die kontinuierliche Arbeit an der Karriere in München und Berlin.Aufregend, abenteuerlich und lehrreich waren die letzten Jahre.

Die Zusammenarbeit mit Produzent Kevin Zaremba und den Autoren Philipp Klemz und Joe Walter, mit denen auch das neue Album entstanden ist. Vertrauen und Freundschaft. Etwas wagen, was man auch musikalisch den Songs des neuen Albums anhört. Modern klingt es und klar. Wagemutiger als der Vorgänger, abwechslungsreicher. Spannend, sich jetzt schon auszumalen, wie sich das live auf der Bühne anhören wird. Sicherlich wieder grandios musikalisch umgesetzt von Benni Freibott (Gitarre), Manuel Weber (Keyboard), Manfred Sauer (Bass) und Florian Kettler (Schlagzeug).

10ccBiography (full version)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. Testament to 10cc?s ongoing appeal, the band can count a generation straddling array of fellow artists, everyone from Chrissie Hynde to The Feeling?s Dan Gillespie and Axl Rose to Sophie Ellis Bextor, among their many millions of fans. I´m Not In Love, co-written by Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart, features prominently in the soundtrack to the 2014 blockbuster film Guardians of the Galaxy, which grossed $635 million in its first two months in US cinemas and spawned a No 1 album. Meanwhile, a key element of the soundtrack to 2010?s Facebook feature film The Social Network is Dreadlock Holiday, which is also the Sky Sports cricket reports theme in Australia.10cc has sold more than 30 million albums around the world and the band?s longevity is testament to their timeless songs, and reflecting Gouldman?s status as one of the world?s leading songwriters, he was inducted into America?s Songwriter?s Hall of Fame at a ceremony in New York in June. Previous inductees include Noel Coward, Burt Bacharach, Neil Sedaka, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Elton John and Sting.The band continues to traverse the globe and play countries as disparate as Iceland and South Africa, Latvia and Japan, as well as across Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Canada and the US. Following a 26-date UK tour in October-November, early 2019 will see the band play three concerts in Japan, before touring Denmark, Sweden and Norway, followed by a 15-date major city UK tour and the band?s first concert in Moscow. 10cc returns to the UK?s prestigeous, 5,200-capacity Royal Albert Hall in London on 2 May 2019.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. /210cc Biography (full version) - page 210cc ruled the pop world at a time ? the 1970s ? when the charts were dominated by some of the most creative and colourful artistes 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 centred on image or celebrity-status, but on creating highly sophisticated rock masterworks with mainstream appeal. Early influences on the band included The Beatles and the Beach Boys, but their palate proved wide. Says Gouldman: ?For me it was people like Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Jimmy Webb, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers. Eric [Stewart] was more rock ?n? roll, the blues and R&B; while Kevin [Godley] and Lol [Creme] were into more artistic and avant-garde acts including Jacques Brel. It?s what happened when we put all those things together that made 10cc.? The result was some of the greatest pop records of the 20th Century. From breakthrough hit Donna in 1972 to their final No 1, Dreadlock Holiday in 1978, via landmark releases including 1975 worldwide hit I?m Not In Love, 10cc stood for the kind of heightened pop sensibility achieved only by the very greatest music practitioners. As Rolling Stone magazine put it in 1975, ?There is more going on in one 10cc song than on the last ten Yes albums.?With hit song-writing credits with bands including the Yardbirds, Hollies and Herman?s Hermits under his belt, the early 1970s saw Gouldman and his compatriots reach new levels of creative endeavour. He spent time in New York writing for bubblegum kings Jerry Kazenetz and Jeff Katz., but fed up with being away from home, he returned to the UK to record the songs he had written Stateside with his friends at Strawberry Studios in Stockport. Back in Manchester, Stewart, Godley and Creme had also been busy, with Stewart testing a new four-track recorder that lead to the recording of Neanderthal Man, a track that went on to enjoy 14 weeks in the UK charts in 1970, peaking at No 2. The band was called Hotlegs and comprised Godley, Creme, Stewart, and briefly Gouldman.In1972 Gouldman?s manager Harvey Lisberg (later to become 10cc?s manager) met Neil Sedaka, who was playing a residency at Batley Variety Club in Yorkshire. Sedaka?s career was in decline and Lisberg suggested he worked with the guys at Strawberry. The result was Sedaka?s hit comeback album Solitaire, produced by Gouldman, Stewart, Godley and Creme, with Stewart acting as engineer.?We all learned so much from those sessions. Neil?s sheer professionalism, musicianship and song-writing were inspiring,? says Gouldman./310cc Biography (full version) - page 3 ?We?d done a few tracks and we needed a B-side for Waterfall [a Gouldman/Stewart composition]. There was a possibility that it would come out on the Apple label, which we were very excited about, because any connection with the Beatles was great,? says Gouldman. A Godley and Creme song, Donna, was chosen. ?We didn?t have a name for the band and weren?t bent on world domination or anything, but Donna made us sit up and notice ourselves, that we actually had something special.?And so 10cc was born, Donna became the A side and reached No 2 in the UK charts. Right from the start it was obvious they weren?t like other groups. All four could sing, were adept in the recording studio, and were seasoned musicians more interested in pleasing themselves than writing to a formula. Not long after Donna was released, Sedaka returned to Strawberry to record a second album, The Tra-La Days Are Over, with the same team, and his career took off again.10cc comprised essentially two song-writing camps, Gouldman and Stewart, plus Godley and Creme, although they would sometimes intermingle. ?Our principle was always the music,? says Gouldman, ?whatever?s best for the song. That means if I can sing better than you on it, that?s what happens. Or if Lol can play lead guitar better than you, he?ll do it. Consequently we had four singers in the band, four instrumentalists and four producers, plus Eric also engineered the sessions.?The other thing was whoever wrote the song, it kind of became the property of the four of us. You couldn?t say, ?That song is crap, I don?t want anything to do with it?. What you had to say was, ?I don?t like that part of the song, but I think we could make it better by doing this?. You always had to come up with something positive.??It was the combination of all four of us that made the difference, not only in the song-writing, but in the production values as well,? says Gouldman.Whether it?s the eight-minute pop opera Une Nuit a Paris, or the No.1 hit pop masterpiece I?m Not In Love, both from The Original Soundtrack (1975) album, no two 10cc records sound the same,?A very important element,? explains Gouldman, ?was we were completely self-contained. There wasn?t even a producer. If Eric was singing one of us would work the board. We used to just give the tracks straight to the record company.?Indeed, they didn?t even have a recognisable frontman. ?Eric was a very good-looking guy who took on the role quite often, and Lol was also brilliant out front. But you?d never know on the record who was playing guitar or even who was singing sometimes.?/410cc Biography (full version) - page 4The first time 10cc played live, at the Isle of Man Casino in 1973, they were taken aback at the response. ?We went onstage and girls started screaming! It was like, what the f**k is going on? We imagined ourselves as professors of pop who were going to give a lecture on pop music, but it wasn?t like that at all.?The critical plaudits also rolled in. Rolling Stone calling The Original Soundtrack, ?better than anything the Beach Boys have done of late?. The NME described I?m Not In Love as ?a John Lennon song with a Paul McCartney vocal?. In an age where critics spent an inordinate amount of time trying to identify the new Beatles, 10cc increasingly seemed to fit the bill.?Because we existed in our own world, we didn?t need anyone to tell us how good we were. We listened to the records and went, this is everything we want it to be and more.? Even after the astonishing success of I?m Not In Love, they refused to play the game and followed it up with the acidic Art For Art?s Sake ? and scored another Top 5 hit.?Art for art?s sake, money for God?s sake, was something my late father used to say to me, although he wasn?t cynical like that at all ? he was very artistic. But it?s such a lovely phrase. Eric had this riff and I just started singing that, and the song came.?The biggest surprise of all was the departure of Godley and Creme after their next album, How Dare You? ?It was horrible,? Gouldman confesses. ?It was an absolute disaster. Like getting a divorce.?Godley and Creme had become preoccupied with the Gizmotron ? from the word ?gizmo? ? a device they had invented which when applied could bring new sounds and textures out of an electric guitar. Obsessed with devising a showcase for it, they began recording a triple album together, Consequences.Says a reflective Gouldman now, ?Kev and I, who stayed quite close, have talked about this since and have decided what should have happened; he and Lol should have gone go off and done their thing for a year or so, then allowed 10cc to resume. ?But that?s just not how things were done in the ?70s. No one had a year off. Plus I think the record company were probably expecting another album, tours were booked and so on.?Instead, Gouldman and Stewart continued as 10cc and scored more notable successes with their next two albums, Deceptive Bends (1977) ? featuring their next worldwide hit single Things We Do For Love ? and Bloody Tourists (1978), which spawned another international hit, Dreadlock Holiday.?We were on a mission to prove ourselves,? says Gouldman, ?This wasn?t like a couple of guys leaving the band who just played their instruments. This was two of the producers going, two of the singers going, two of the songwriters going. So it was a real 50 percent gone.?Ultimately, the split took its toll and when Stewart was badly injured in a car crash in 1979, the writing was on the wall. /510cc Biography (full version) - page 5?It flattened me completely,? Stewart later recalled. ?I damaged my left ear and eye very badly. I couldn´t go near music. I couldn´t go near anything loud and I love music and motor-racing. I had to stay away from both things for a long time [and] the momentum of this big machine that we´d had rolling slowed and slowed and slowed. And on the music scene, the punk thing had come in a big way.?All four original members enjoyed very successful post-10cc careers. Godley and Creme continued as a partnership, recording their own hit records and becoming Grammy-winning video directors for acts including Ultravox, The Police, Duran Duran and Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Stewart collaborated on three Paul McCartney albums in the 1980s and continues to record sporadically as a solo artiste, his most recent collection being Viva La Difference in 2009.Meanwhile Gouldman spent the 1980s concentrating on recording soundtracks for films such as Farah Fawcett?s Sunburn and the American animation Animalympics. He also worked as a producer with The Ramones and Gilbert O?Sullivan. He then formed Wax with American songwriter Andrew ?Lonely Boy? Gold and had hits with Right Between The Eyes and Bridge To You Heart.There were two final Gouldman-Stewart directed 10cc albums in the ?90s, the first ... Meanwhile (1992), featured contributions from both Godley and Creme, while the last, Mirror Mirror (1995), despite featuring contributions from McCartney and Gold, was more a collection of Gouldman and Stewart solo songs. That same year, 10cc received a BMI citation for three million plays on US radio for I?m Not In Love (since risen to five million). This followed the BMI citation for two million plays (since risen to 3.5m) of Things We Do For Love,In 2002, the 30th anniversary of the band?s debut hit Donna, 10cc began to creep back into the national consciousness. With Gouldman fronting a new touring band, a 28-date UK tour was followed by a series of one-off events across Europe. The band have continued to regularly tour the world ever since. In 2006, Universal records released the TV-advertised, double CD 10cc: Greatest Hits ? And More, and the following year national newspaper the Mail On Sunday produced a special 10-track, cover-mount Best of 10cc Live CD, distributing more than 2.4 million copies throughout the UK and Ireland. The paper reported that sales rose by 232,000 on the day of publication.For the band?s 40th anniversary year in 2012, Universal Records released a new five-CD box set entitled Tenology, featuring 80 tracks chosen by the four original band members.A world tour took 10cc as far and wide as Iceland and Australia, and saw them play London?s Royal Albert Hall for the first time. The landmark concert saw Kevin Godley guest on several numbers including a capella version of Donna./610cc Biography (full version) - page 6After 50 concerts with 10cc that year, Gouldman decided to tour as an acoustic outfit, Heart Full of Songs, which included10cc?s Rick Fenn, Mick Wilson and Mike Stevens. Their set included hits Gouldman wrote for The Hollies, Herman?s Hermits, the Yardbirds and film soundtracks, along with material from his new solo album Love And Work.In 2013, 10cc joined Status Quo for a tour of UK arenas, including London?s 20,000-capacity The O2. In the years since, the band have toured in Australia, Ireland Japan, New Zealand across the UK and Europe and at London?s 60,000-capacity British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park.?Year on year we get busier and busier. It?s great, we love touring and playing together and we get on really well. The audiences these days are very gratifying. You get the people you would expect, who grew up with 10cc, but you also get young kids who know the songs too,? says Gouldman. With four decades of song-writing excellence and a crack band of musicians behind him Gouldman confidently promises, ?This is as near as you?re ever going to get to hearing the perfect 10cc.

10ccBiography (full version)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. Testament to 10cc?s ongoing appeal, the band can count a generation straddling array of fellow artists, everyone from Chrissie Hynde to The Feeling?s Dan Gillespie and Axl Rose to Sophie Ellis Bextor, among their many millions of fans. I´m Not In Love, co-written by Graham Gouldman and Eric Stewart, features prominently in the soundtrack to the 2014 blockbuster film Guardians of the Galaxy, which grossed $635 million in its first two months in US cinemas and spawned a No 1 album. Meanwhile, a key element of the soundtrack to 2010?s Facebook feature film The Social Network is Dreadlock Holiday, which is also the Sky Sports cricket reports theme in Australia.10cc has sold more than 30 million albums around the world and the band?s longevity is testament to their timeless songs, and reflecting Gouldman?s status as one of the world?s leading songwriters, he was inducted into America?s Songwriter?s Hall of Fame at a ceremony in New York in June. Previous inductees include Noel Coward, Burt Bacharach, Neil Sedaka, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Leonard Cohen, Elton John and Sting.The band continues to traverse the globe and play countries as disparate as Iceland and South Africa, Latvia and Japan, as well as across Europe, Australia and New Zealand, Canada and the US. Following a 26-date UK tour in October-November, early 2019 will see the band play three concerts in Japan, before touring Denmark, Sweden and Norway, followed by a 15-date major city UK tour and the band?s first concert in Moscow. 10cc returns to the UK?s prestigeous, 5,200-capacity Royal Albert Hall in London on 2 May 2019.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. /210cc Biography (full version) - page 210cc ruled the pop world at a time ? the 1970s ? when the charts were dominated by some of the most creative and colourful artistes 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 centred on image or celebrity-status, but on creating highly sophisticated rock masterworks with mainstream appeal. Early influences on the band included The Beatles and the Beach Boys, but their palate proved wide. Says Gouldman: ?For me it was people like Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Jimmy Webb, Eddie Cochran, Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers. Eric [Stewart] was more rock ?n? roll, the blues and R&B; while Kevin [Godley] and Lol [Creme] were into more artistic and avant-garde acts including Jacques Brel. It?s what happened when we put all those things together that made 10cc.? The result was some of the greatest pop records of the 20th Century. From breakthrough hit Donna in 1972 to their final No 1, Dreadlock Holiday in 1978, via landmark releases including 1975 worldwide hit I?m Not In Love, 10cc stood for the kind of heightened pop sensibility achieved only by the very greatest music practitioners. As Rolling Stone magazine put it in 1975, ?There is more going on in one 10cc song than on the last ten Yes albums.?With hit song-writing credits with bands including the Yardbirds, Hollies and Herman?s Hermits under his belt, the early 1970s saw Gouldman and his compatriots reach new levels of creative endeavour. He spent time in New York writing for bubblegum kings Jerry Kazenetz and Jeff Katz., but fed up with being away from home, he returned to the UK to record the songs he had written Stateside with his friends at Strawberry Studios in Stockport. Back in Manchester, Stewart, Godley and Creme had also been busy, with Stewart testing a new four-track recorder that lead to the recording of Neanderthal Man, a track that went on to enjoy 14 weeks in the UK charts in 1970, peaking at No 2. The band was called Hotlegs and comprised Godley, Creme, Stewart, and briefly Gouldman.In1972 Gouldman?s manager Harvey Lisberg (later to become 10cc?s manager) met Neil Sedaka, who was playing a residency at Batley Variety Club in Yorkshire. Sedaka?s career was in decline and Lisberg suggested he worked with the guys at Strawberry. The result was Sedaka?s hit comeback album Solitaire, produced by Gouldman, Stewart, Godley and Creme, with Stewart acting as engineer.?We all learned so much from those sessions. Neil?s sheer professionalism, musicianship and song-writing were inspiring,? says Gouldman./310cc Biography (full version) - page 3 ?We?d done a few tracks and we needed a B-side for Waterfall [a Gouldman/Stewart composition]. There was a possibility that it would come out on the Apple label, which we were very excited about, because any connection with the Beatles was great,? says Gouldman. A Godley and Creme song, Donna, was chosen. ?We didn?t have a name for the band and weren?t bent on world domination or anything, but Donna made us sit up and notice ourselves, that we actually had something special.?And so 10cc was born, Donna became the A side and reached No 2 in the UK charts. Right from the start it was obvious they weren?t like other groups. All four could sing, were adept in the recording studio, and were seasoned musicians more interested in pleasing themselves than writing to a formula. Not long after Donna was released, Sedaka returned to Strawberry to record a second album, The Tra-La Days Are Over, with the same team, and his career took off again.10cc comprised essentially two song-writing camps, Gouldman and Stewart, plus Godley and Creme, although they would sometimes intermingle. ?Our principle was always the music,? says Gouldman, ?whatever?s best for the song. That means if I can sing better than you on it, that?s what happens. Or if Lol can play lead guitar better than you, he?ll do it. Consequently we had four singers in the band, four instrumentalists and four producers, plus Eric also engineered the sessions.?The other thing was whoever wrote the song, it kind of became the property of the four of us. You couldn?t say, ?That song is crap, I don?t want anything to do with it?. What you had to say was, ?I don?t like that part of the song, but I think we could make it better by doing this?. You always had to come up with something positive.??It was the combination of all four of us that made the difference, not only in the song-writing, but in the production values as well,? says Gouldman.Whether it?s the eight-minute pop opera Une Nuit a Paris, or the No.1 hit pop masterpiece I?m Not In Love, both from The Original Soundtrack (1975) album, no two 10cc records sound the same,?A very important element,? explains Gouldman, ?was we were completely self-contained. There wasn?t even a producer. If Eric was singing one of us would work the board. We used to just give the tracks straight to the record company.?Indeed, they didn?t even have a recognisable frontman. ?Eric was a very good-looking guy who took on the role quite often, and Lol was also brilliant out front. But you?d never know on the record who was playing guitar or even who was singing sometimes.?/410cc Biography (full version) - page 4The first time 10cc played live, at the Isle of Man Casino in 1973, they were taken aback at the response. ?We went onstage and girls started screaming! It was like, what the f**k is going on? We imagined ourselves as professors of pop who were going to give a lecture on pop music, but it wasn?t like that at all.?The critical plaudits also rolled in. Rolling Stone calling The Original Soundtrack, ?better than anything the Beach Boys have done of late?. The NME described I?m Not In Love as ?a John Lennon song with a Paul McCartney vocal?. In an age where critics spent an inordinate amount of time trying to identify the new Beatles, 10cc increasingly seemed to fit the bill.?Because we existed in our own world, we didn?t need anyone to tell us how good we were. We listened to the records and went, this is everything we want it to be and more.? Even after the astonishing success of I?m Not In Love, they refused to play the game and followed it up with the acidic Art For Art?s Sake ? and scored another Top 5 hit.?Art for art?s sake, money for God?s sake, was something my late father used to say to me, although he wasn?t cynical like that at all ? he was very artistic. But it?s such a lovely phrase. Eric had this riff and I just started singing that, and the song came.?The biggest surprise of all was the departure of Godley and Creme after their next album, How Dare You? ?It was horrible,? Gouldman confesses. ?It was an absolute disaster. Like getting a divorce.?Godley and Creme had become preoccupied with the Gizmotron ? from the word ?gizmo? ? a device they had invented which when applied could bring new sounds and textures out of an electric guitar. Obsessed with devising a showcase for it, they began recording a triple album together, Consequences.Says a reflective Gouldman now, ?Kev and I, who stayed quite close, have talked about this since and have decided what should have happened; he and Lol should have gone go off and done their thing for a year or so, then allowed 10cc to resume. ?But that?s just not how things were done in the ?70s. No one had a year off. Plus I think the record company were probably expecting another album, tours were booked and so on.?Instead, Gouldman and Stewart continued as 10cc and scored more notable successes with their next two albums, Deceptive Bends (1977) ? featuring their next worldwide hit single Things We Do For Love ? and Bloody Tourists (1978), which spawned another international hit, Dreadlock Holiday.?We were on a mission to prove ourselves,? says Gouldman, ?This wasn?t like a couple of guys leaving the band who just played their instruments. This was two of the producers going, two of the singers going, two of the songwriters going. So it was a real 50 percent gone.?Ultimately, the split took its toll and when Stewart was badly injured in a car crash in 1979, the writing was on the wall. /510cc Biography (full version) - page 5?It flattened me completely,? Stewart later recalled. ?I damaged my left ear and eye very badly. I couldn´t go near music. I couldn´t go near anything loud and I love music and motor-racing. I had to stay away from both things for a long time [and] the momentum of this big machine that we´d had rolling slowed and slowed and slowed. And on the music scene, the punk thing had come in a big way.?All four original members enjoyed very successful post-10cc careers. Godley and Creme continued as a partnership, recording their own hit records and becoming Grammy-winning video directors for acts including Ultravox, The Police, Duran Duran and Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Stewart collaborated on three Paul McCartney albums in the 1980s and continues to record sporadically as a solo artiste, his most recent collection being Viva La Difference in 2009.Meanwhile Gouldman spent the 1980s concentrating on recording soundtracks for films such as Farah Fawcett?s Sunburn and the American animation Animalympics. He also worked as a producer with The Ramones and Gilbert O?Sullivan. He then formed Wax with American songwriter Andrew ?Lonely Boy? Gold and had hits with Right Between The Eyes and Bridge To You Heart.There were two final Gouldman-Stewart directed 10cc albums in the ?90s, the first ... Meanwhile (1992), featured contributions from both Godley and Creme, while the last, Mirror Mirror (1995), despite featuring contributions from McCartney and Gold, was more a collection of Gouldman and Stewart solo songs. That same year, 10cc received a BMI citation for three million plays on US radio for I?m Not In Love (since risen to five million). This followed the BMI citation for two million plays (since risen to 3.5m) of Things We Do For Love,In 2002, the 30th anniversary of the band?s debut hit Donna, 10cc began to creep back into the national consciousness. With Gouldman fronting a new touring band, a 28-date UK tour was followed by a series of one-off events across Europe. The band have continued to regularly tour the world ever since. In 2006, Universal records released the TV-advertised, double CD 10cc: Greatest Hits ? And More, and the following year national newspaper the Mail On Sunday produced a special 10-track, cover-mount Best of 10cc Live CD, distributing more than 2.4 million copies throughout the UK and Ireland. The paper reported that sales rose by 232,000 on the day of publication.For the band?s 40th anniversary year in 2012, Universal Records released a new five-CD box set entitled Tenology, featuring 80 tracks chosen by the four original band members.A world tour took 10cc as far and wide as Iceland and Australia, and saw them play London?s Royal Albert Hall for the first time. The landmark concert saw Kevin Godley guest on several numbers including a capella version of Donna./610cc Biography (full version) - page 6After 50 concerts with 10cc that year, Gouldman decided to tour as an acoustic outfit, Heart Full of Songs, which included10cc?s Rick Fenn, Mick Wilson and Mike Stevens. Their set included hits Gouldman wrote for The Hollies, Herman?s Hermits, the Yardbirds and film soundtracks, along with material from his new solo album Love And Work.In 2013, 10cc joined Status Quo for a tour of UK arenas, including London?s 20,000-capacity The O2. In the years since, the band have toured in Australia, Ireland Japan, New Zealand across the UK and Europe and at London?s 60,000-capacity British Summer Time festival in Hyde Park.?Year on year we get busier and busier. It?s great, we love touring and playing together and we get on really well. The audiences these days are very gratifying. You get the people you would expect, who grew up with 10cc, but you also get young kids who know the songs too,? says Gouldman. With four decades of song-writing excellence and a crack band of musicians behind him Gouldman confidently promises, ?This is as near as you?re ever going to get to hearing the perfect 10cc. Hit after hit after hit. It?s relentless. We show no mercy.?The live band?s line-up is:Graham Gouldman-bass, guitars, vocalsRick Fenn - lead guitar, vocals, bass guitarPaul Burgess - drums, percussionIain Hornal - vocals, percussion, guitar, keyboardsKeith Hayman - keyboards, guitar, bass, vocalsPaul has worked with 10cc from the beginning and Rick joined the live band in the mid-?70s. 10cc ?

The GrooveGrass Boyz was an American musical group that played a mix of bluegrass, funk, and freestyle music. The group was founded as a side project by record producer and session musician Scott Rouse in 1987, after he began experimenting with dance mixes of bluegrass and country songs, eventually applying the term groovegrass to his mix of music. He then moved to Nashville, Tennessee, and joined several other country musicians and funk bass guitarist Bootsy Collins, releasing a country version of Los del Río''s "Macarena" and two albums. The country cover of "Macarena" charted on both the Hot Country Songs charts and the Bubbling Under Hot 100, and was the group''s first chart entry.

The band regularly performed at Luna Lounge and were one of the first groups to emerge out of the lower east side NYC downtown music scene. In 1999, they hired New York attorney Ray Maiello to shop their self produced debut album and signed with Kevin Patrick at Columbia Records, shortly thereafter, Maiello was hired as band manager. Brown''s favorite song to play is "From Listening To Lightning" Wheatus'' first and largest hit was "Teenage Dirtbag," which charted at 2 in the UK. Their second single "A Little Respect" also reached high chart positions, and was another top-3 hit for the band on the UK singles chart. Their third single, a double A-side of "Leroy" and "Wannabe Gangstar", was recorded at Abbey Road in the famed studio 2. The single consequently didn''t perform as well as the first 2, reaching twenty-third in the UK singles chart.
