Previous to his remarkable work with the watershed art-rock ensemble 10cc, bassist, composer, singer, recording artist, multi-instrumentalist Graham Keith Gouldman penned seminal hits for several artists including the Yardbirds’ “For Your Love,” The Hollies’ “Bus Stop,” among others for Herman’s Hermits, Wayne Fontana, and Cher to cite a few.
With 10cc, Gouldman was the consummate song player and writer, sharing a co-credit on one of the band’s most recognizable tunes “I’m Not In Love.” Gouldman currently fronts a 10cc Revue.

No, the name actually did come from Jonathan King. Um, he said he’d had a dream the night before he came up to Manchester to listen to Donna. And, he saw a hoarding over Wembley Stadium or Hammersmith Odeon or something like that and said, “10cc The Best Group in the World”. So we … well, that sounds great to us, we’ll call ourselves 10cc. And that’s how it came about. "
