Gouldman and Stewart both were members in the last days of the MINDBENDERS (1 single) - Gouldman went
to Kasenetz-Katz in the States to do songwriting....Stewart & Godley-Creme played as houseband of
the Strawberry Studios and founded the HOTLEGS.
After the demise of the HOTLEGS ; known through their primitive genial NEANDERTHAL MAN (Hit No. 2 in UK);
they added GRAHAM GOULDMAN ,one of UKs greatest songwriters (only think on NO MILK TODAY; BUS STOP;
STOP STOP STOP; FOR YOUR LOVE or HEARTFUL OF SOUL to name a few) to the lineup and 10 CC was born.
In 1972 they got immediately signed to Jonathan Kings UK-Label. Already the first single hit the charts at No 2,
they followed by a row of top 10 hits in the 70s. A big break came when GODLEY & CREME split in the middle
of 1976 to form a own successful Duo. In the 80s, when it went quieter around them, so they split in 1983.
The Band reformed somewhere in the 90s.
