We could go through the debate all year. Yes it's 10cc but it's not 10cc. I saw one of their shows about 6 years ago, it was brilliant.

Not seen them since, normally go to venues that are too far away.

I see that Eric Stewart has just published his autobiography. I might read that. He appears to absolutely loathe Graham Gouldman these days.

Sounds like there is a name dispute bit like with Foreigner and Rubettes.

I can never understand these things but they do arise - that was why, when I decided to call Charterhouse band Genesis, we got a complaint from some American girl group. Told them to piss off.

No doubt they were a girl choir for a local church.

According to Eric, the original four members of 10cc were offered lots of money a couple of years ago to reunite for a brief stadium tour. Eric, Kevin and Lol agreed, but Graham said he preferred to continue with 'his' 10cc, which, if true, was a huge shame.

I remain very fond of all four group members.

Eric, Kevin and Lol should form their own band called 'Formally of 10CC'. Graham should not really be using the '10cc' name but he puts on a decent gig.

Reading Eric's book at the mo. Very interesting. He says you wanted to manage the Mindbenders - I can't remember that from your own autobiography.

Exactly right; I was about 16 or 17 and went to Manchester to persuade Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders I'd be a great manager. It was how I first got to meet Eric. We've been friends ever since. Of course I was Kenneth then and didn't regard this as worth mentioning in 65 My Life So Far. I might cover it in 75 FFFY!

Any plans for the book to be reprinted.

There's an interesting story in Eric's book that I hadn't known about at all. He says he was summoned to Manchester for a meeting with the other three band members and their manager, and was told that the other three were continuing 10cc without him. Cue him staggering out of the room in a state of bewilderment. Then a couple of weeks later, the manager got back in touch to say there'd been some confusion, and Godley and Creme wanted to leave 10cc completely, and didn't want to work with Gouldman. So after being persuaded that it made commercial sense to continue as 10cc, Stewart reluctantly resumed working with Gouldman, while never forgetting that he'd been ready to dump him from the band. I guess that explains the deep-rooted antipathy.
