After the demise of the HOTLEGS ; known through their primitive but 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; HEARTFUL OF SOUL ;
STOP STOP STOP or FOR YOUR LOVE 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, it went quieter around them, so they split in 1983.
The Band reformed somewhere in the 90s.
