SEVENTIES rockers 10cc are playing Aberdeen's Music Hall next month.
With 11 top 10 hits, including three number ones – Rubber Bullets, I'm Not In Love and Dreadlock Holiday – the band has sold 15 million albums in the UK alone.
Founding member Graham Gouldman, who leads the current line-up, puts 10cc's longevity down to the quality and individuality of the songs.
He said: "They don't seem to date; they are original, we never followed any trend, we simply 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.
"The current band 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."
They are one of the few acts to have achieved commercial, critical and creative success in equal measure, with their current live incarnation still able to sell-out major concert halls.
Testament to 10cc's ongoing appeal, the band can count an array of fellow artists – from Robert Plant, Chrissie Hynde and Axl Rose to The Feeling's Dan Gillespie and Sophie Ellis Bextor – among their many millions of fans.
The current line-up consists of Graham Gouldman, Rick Fenn, Paul Burgess, Mick Wilson and Mike Stevens.
Paul has worked with 10cc from the beginning and Rick joined the live band in the mid-'70s. Mike is also musical director with Take That, among other major artistes.
