Kevin Godley To Perform With 10cc In London
Kevin Godley, a founder member of 10cc, will guest with the band’s current line-up at 10cc’s 40th anniversary show at the Royal Albert Hall on May 10.
The 2012 line-up of 10cc features fellow original member Graham Gouldman along with Paul Burgess, Rick Fenn, Mick Wilson and Mike Stevens.
Says Gouldman: “Kevin and I have stayed in touch over the years and we wrote and recorded some songs together a few years ago for the first time since those halcyon days back in Stockport, so it was natural to ask him to come and sing a few songs with us at the Albert Hall. To my mind Kevin was always the great unsung vocalist of the band. It should be an emotional night.”
Says Godley: “Looking forward to jumping in the time machine and going back… or is it forward? Actually it’s both. 10cc was a peculiar chemical reaction, a joining of unlikely dots and an equation that didn’t make sense. Good job I was more into making noise than sense. Time to make less sense all over again. Now, what should I wear…?”
